The GBTA area of land covers a large eucalypt forest and three endangered regional ecosystems. Oxley Creek flows through the site and there is estimated approximately sixty species of plant, including the common lillipillies (Eugenia spp) through to more exotic plants such as cats claw creeper and madeirva vine. The land is thought to also contain Aboriginal heritage, although this has not yet been documented. Much of the land is undeveloped and well vegetated, making an excellent habitat for the greater glider (Petauroides Volans) and Koala (Phascoarctos Cinereus). Of course with a heavily vegetated area, feral animals have been recorded in the area and these include the fox, cat, horse and pig. On 28th May 1996, the area was listed on the Australian Heritage Database.
