It possesses vast areas of wilderness and spectacular coastal scenery. Murray Lagoon to the north of the reserve is the island's largest freshwater lagoon, a wetland habitat supporting abundant birdlife. The park also includes D'Estrees Bay, a historic site of the early whaling industry with sandy beaches and low key camping areas (camping fees apply). At D'Estrees Bay and Murray Lagoon there are a number of walking trails in the Murray Lagoon area and wilderness walking opportunities along the coast commencing from the end of the road to D'Estrees Road. Self-registration and payment for camping is available at the park.
