More than 100,000 hectares of national parks, regional parks and proposed Aboriginal managed lands make up the river red gum parks of the Riverina, declared by an Act of NSW Parliament on 1 July 2010.

Together with parks across the border in Victoria, these parks form the largest area of river red gum in conservation reserves in the world.

These reserves were established following a 2009 assessment on the Riverina Bioregion by the NSW Natural Resources Commission.
