The southern edge of the park borders a section of the Great Australian Bight. Other notable features of the park include Wilson Bluff and Delisser sandhills.
The area is composed of mallee scrub and heath vegetation, typical of the southern coast. Wildflowers such as Cockie's Tongue (Templetonia retusa), with its distinctive red, pink or yellow flowers are common throughout the park. A rare plant species of senecio that is native to the limestone cliff area is known to exist in the park.
Access to the area is via the Eyre Highway found on the northern border of the park. No facilities are available for visitors in the park and no sealed roads exist within the park, only 4WD tracks.
No camping is permitted within the park, the nearest camping facilities are at Eucla and the Border Village.
