The Gunning Reserves contain a number of significant vegetation communities and species, including two endangered ecological communities, one threatened plant species and eight threatened animal species. There are also two historic trig markers dating from the late 1880s within the Gunning Reserves as well as Aboriginal sites.
The plan contains a number of actions including strategies to assist the recovery of threatened species and ecological communities, monitoring of vegetation and control weeds and pest animals. The plan also allows for low-impact recreation, including walking, picnicking, cycling, bushwalking and bush camping.
