Lake George regularly supports more than 1% of the world population of Red-necked Stint, and often Sharp-tailed Sandpiper and Banded Stilt. Lakes Hawdon, Robe and Eliza sometimes support threshold numbers of these species, and of Double-banded Plover. The IBA provides habitat for the critically endangered Orange-bellied Parrot, the endangered Australasian Bittern, the restricted-range Rufous Bristlebird and the biome-restricted Striated Fieldwren.
