In November 1998, after celebrating 10 years as a state park, Terrick Terrick was declared a national park. This was a result of the acquisition of a 1277 ha property adjacent to the park. This property contains the largest remnant of endangered northern plains grassland community, and is probably the largest area of high quality remnant grassland vegetation in Victoria. In addition, several species of national and state significance have been recorded here. The values of this property have been retained through a conservative sheep grazing regime with relatively light stocking rates.
In October 2002, the park was expanded to 3,880ha with the passing of the Box-Ironbark legislation. As a result of the River Red Gums investigation in 2010, the park was again expanded with the addition of 10 grassland areas previously reserved as nature conservation reserves, wildlife reserves or river frontage. At 5882 hectares, the expanded National Park more than doubles the extent of Northern Plains Grassland protected within the park.
