Murrumbidgee Valley Nature Reserve is located on the floodplains of the Murrumbidgee River. It is known for its population of koalas, which were reintroduced to the area in 1971 and 1974. There are river red gums on the floodplains, with scattered yellow box.
The river red gum community 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.
