The land which now comprises the conservation park previously received statutory protection in March 1967 as a fauna conservation reserve declared under the Crown Lands Act 1929-1966 and was re-proclaimed in 1972 under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972 as a conservation park.
The area under protection is considered significant for the following reason: ‘a small island supporting breeding colonies of fairy penguins, black-faced cormorants, sooty oystercatchers, crested terns, pacific gulls and silver gulls.’
The conservation park is classified as an IUCN Category III protected area.
