Miles Island is a small sandy island in Wallis Lake, the sparkling jewel in the crown that consists of the Great Lakes region in the Barrington Coast.

It's a popular spot for island hopping by visitors and locals alike.

Swimming across the channel can be tricky especially if the tide is going out, so it's best to choose a means of transport, boat or paddling.

Miles Island is also used as a feeding and shelter area for threatened shorebird species including the Pied Oyster Catcher and Little Tern.

It's a great spot; you can swim across the canal, but be careful about the currents. It's a great place for boats. It's a lovely place to swim or fish

Love it! Swam across to the island every day on our recent holiday from memorial drive. If swimming from the wharf just have to be careful about the current. If it's going out to the inlet/ocean it's best to jump from the wharf near the Amaroo and use it to take you to the island and when swimming back first walk the sandbank along the seagrass so you can use the current to take you to the wharf. Saw sooo many dolphins here everyday. 10/10. The best!!!!
