Murrumbidgee Valley Nature Reserve is on the floodplains of the Murrumbidgee River. It was created in July 2010 by combining two former reserves: Narrandera Nature Reserve and Yanga Nature Reserve.
The Narrandera section of the reserve is known for its population of koalas, which were reintroduced to the reserve in 1971 and 1974. There are river red gums on the floodplain, with scattered yellow box. The river red gum community of the Narrandera section includes river red gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis), yellow box (E. melliodora) and river cooba (Acacia stenophylla). A number of medium sized trees such as river oak (Casuarina cunninghamiana subsp. Cunninghamiana) and white cypress pine (Callitris glaucophylla) also occur within the reserve.
The Yanga section is dominated by river bank (riparian) communities of black box.
