The park and reserve are significant for their diverse native forests, large number of threatened or rare plant species and restricted plant communities including significant areas of old growth forest, high habitat value for a diverse range of native animal species and populations of a large number of threatened fauna including the very rare long-footed potoroo, evidence of substantial and extensive Aboriginal occupation and features remaining from European use, high water catchment values, high scenic values, wilderness and remote areas which allow natural processes to continue undisturbed; and a range of education, tourism and recreation opportunities.
