Flora and fauna

The reserve protects yate, mallet and moort woodland as well as mallee heath vegetation and riparian communities along the upper Peniup Creek. Much of the reserve was previously cleared and is now regenerating or planned to be revegetated. Animals either recorded, or expected to be present, include black-gloved wallaby, tammar wallaby and red-tailed phascogale.[1]

The nearby Peniup Nature Reserve is used for the DEC recovery program for the Dibbler (Parantechinus apicalis), an attempt to conserve this endangered species by its reintroduction.[2]
