The dominant feature of the park is the lake system which comprises 10,000 hectares of waterways including the Bombah Broadwater, Boolambayte Lake and Myall Lake. The park includes Broughton Island, located 3 kilometres offshore, and extends west of the Pacific Highway to a point 30 kilometres inland from the coastline. To the south, Yacaaba and Fame Cove on Port Stephens are also part of Myall Lakes National Park.
The Myall Coast Reserves include Little Broughton Island (36 hectares) and two islands known as Inner Rock and North Rock which together form Stormpetrel Nature Reserve (8 hectares). They are located about 3 kilometres offshore near Broughton Island.
