The Watagans are covered with tall eucalyptus forest and rainforest. There are several camping areas and four wheel drive roads. Visitors should be careful as some areas can be quite steep and remote, with risky areas of near wilderness. The highest point is Mount Warrawolong which rises to 641 metres (2,103 ft) above sea level.
