The Boonoo Boonoo River passes through the park and includes a cascading 210-metre waterfall and a rainforest filled gorge. Bushwalking, swimming and bush camping are among the attractions of this area.

Boonoo Boonoo is the Aboriginal name given to the area which means 'poor country with no animals to provide food', however, the environment changed and it became home to Kangaroos and Wallabies.[3]
