The gorge is an oasis for wildlife. Birdwatching is always rewarding and the camping area is a great place to see animals. The sandstone and limestone gorges and ranges, along with the permanent waters of Lawn Hill Creek, support a variety of habitats and a range of plants and animals. The area is not only a home for resident animals but also an important corridor for wildlife movement, particularly migrating birds.
