The Park is a biodiversity hotspot, providing habitat for a range of native fauna species and acting an important haven for migratory birds.
It provides essential breeding and feeding habitats for these itinerant species as well as a natural area within the surrounding urban environment where mammals, birds and reptiles can thrive.
The Park is a refuge for:
- three native fish species
- nine amphibian species, including the clicking and the motorbike frogs
- fourteen mammal species, such as the elusive short-beaked echidna and the critically endangered woylie
- 34 reptile species, from the king skink to the long necked turtle
- 111 bird species, including the wedge-tailed eagle from which the Park takes its logo
- and over 150 invertebrate species.
