Woodlark Island, known to its inhabitants simply as Woodlark or Muyuw, is an island in Milne Bay Province, Papua New Guinea. It is called Murua by the inhabitants of some other islands in the province. Muyuw language, one of the Kilivila-Louisiades languages and therefore part of the Austronesian language family, is spoken on the island.
The wider Woodlark Islands group also consists of Madau and Nusam to the west, Nubara to the east, and the Marshall Bennett group to the southwest.
