Queenslanders will "gift" over 10 billion litres of water to the ailing Murray-Darling system.

Queensland Water Minister Craig Wallace said it was a gift from Queenslanders.

"Queensland is serious in its efforts to help the commonwealth save the Murray-Darling and Friday's announcement is further proof of that commitment," Mr Wallace said.

The decision comes after the federal and New South Wales governments this week purchased a large cotton farm in NSW to deliver 20 billion litres of water entitlements back to the Darling River.
