A separate proclamation made on the same day confirmed the preservation of “certain existing and future rights of entry, prospecting, exploration or mining” in respect to the land.

As of 2019, it covered an area of 14.02 square kilometres (5.41 sq mi).

The conservation park is categorised as an IUCN Category VI protected area.
