One of the newer parks, The Paroo-Darling National Park spans two distinct regions covering the arid catchment area of the Paroo River (Peery and Poloko Lakes) and the Paroo-Darling confluence to the south. The northern section of the park, near White Cliffs, is developing a day use area while the southern section covers the old Wilga Station and incorporates one of the best camping areas along the Darling River - Coach and Horses campground, which is 50 km from Wilcannia on the east side of the river.

Peery Lake is a haven for water birds and when full (as it is currently) will contain water for several years.

The Paroo River is the only unregulated river within the Murray Darling Basin and sustains a wonderfully diverse ecosystem.

Camping (no fires) is available at the Coach and Horses campground, ideally situated on a bend in the river with great views, picnic tables, toilets and bbq facilities, while the northern section provides day use facilities only.

Access to the park is via a dry weather road.
