Lake Muir is a popular stop for travellers on the Muir Highway. A good place to stretch your legs and enjoy a picnic after a long stint in the car. The lake forms part of the Muir-Byenup wetland system. Wetlands are important habitats, providing shelter, food and breeding sites for birds and other wildlife. Learn more about the area and visiting bird types at the information shelter.

Follow the boardwalk through the internationally significant wetlands to an elevated bird hide. It’s a great way to see our feathered friends without spooking them. While you’re stretching your legs, enjoy expansive views over Lake Muir. The view is never the same twice and changes with the seasons. In hot summer months the lake may be a dry bed. Stroll along the boardwalk after heavy rains and you’ll see the lake full, in all its watery glory. Either way, it’s worth a look!
