Moonee Beach Nature Reserve conserves seven endangered ecological communities and six threatened plant species, including the only known wild populations of the endangered headland zieria (Zieria prostrata). Thirteen threatened animal species have been recorded in the reserve, many of which are shorebirds. The reserve is also home to a range of more common animals, including eastern grey kangaroos, red-necked wallabies and swamp wallabies.

The reserve also contains many significant Aboriginal sites, including middens, axe factories, sacred sites and artefact scatters, which provide evidence of a rich history of the traditional use of the area by the Gumbaynggirr people.
