Mud Islands Game Reserve is a protected area in South Australia covering ten islands at the southern side of Lake Alexandrina about 19 kilometres (12 miles) south-east of Goolwa. The game reserve is described as providing ‘an ideal habitat for water birds, particularly waterfowl’ and that ‘duck shooting is permitted during open season.’ [4][5][6] Since 2000, the game reserve has been located within the boundaries of the gazetted locality, Coorong.[7]

The game reserve is classified as an IUCN Category VI protected area.[1] In 1980, it was listed on the now-defunct Register of the National Estate.[5]
