The lagoon area contains numerous archaeological sites displaying evidence of past Aboriginal habitation. During and following floods the lagoon would have provided the Aborigines with an abundant supply of water, animal and plant materials.
The ecology of the lagoon is adapted to periodic cycles of flooding and drying. Such cycles are an essential part of the ecological productivity and diversity of these wetlands.
Thegoa Lagoon and the surrounding floodplain consists of a high diversity of habitats within a relativelly small area.
