The vegetation is dominated by Grey box (Eucalyptus microcarpa), with a scattered understorey of wattles, saltbushes and Red-anthered Wallaby-grass (Joycea pallida). Ironbark Park is notable for the abundance of larger trees.
Ironbark Park has excellent habitat for many species, including potential habitat for the threatened Hardhead (Aythya australis) and Brown Treecreeper (Climacteris picumnus).
Located in the Victorian Midlands Bioregion, Ironbark Park contains threatened Box-Ironbark Forest and is part of a larger habitat patch close to Rushworth State Forest and the Goulburn River.
The permanent protection of Ironbark Park will make a significant contribution to nature conservation in the region.
