Following the cleanup of the old dairy farm, the construction of three large water storages, and the development of saltwater wetlands the site is now experiencing fish breeding in the wetlands, wildlife finding a home in the woodlands, and birds returning in increasing numbers.

Corner Inlet, at the entrance to the park, is a protected migratory wading bird area, a significant fish breeding habitat and the foreshore is a nesting and breeding area for around 80 species of water birds. Corner Inlet supports nearly 50% of the migratory wading birds species that (northern) winter over in Victoria. It is the southernmost area in the world for the white Mangrove, has extensive sea grass meadows and is the home of the rare broad leafed species.
