River has much wildlife surrounding it
Apr. 2021
Kalgan River is in the south of Western Australia. It is 140 km (90 miles) long. It flows through lush forests and rolling farmland. Kalgan River is a favorite spot for anglers; it's also much-loved by bird-watchers, who can find many species endemic to WA. Apart from fishing, Kalgan River is well-known for kayaking and canoeing. There are numerous walking trails along the river. Cruising for pleasure along the river is also popular. The Kalgan River finally enters Oyster Harbor, near Albany. Oyster Harbor is a well-known water-bird habitat. The Kalgan is around 4 1/2 hours from Perth by car, or an hour by plane.

Excellent Kalgan Queen River Cruise
Mar. 2021 • Couples
Definitely recommend this cruise, the commentary by Jack was excellent. We got to see ospreys, sea eagles, a seal and no joke dancing pelicans. The scenery was beautiful. We also got to taste local produce from Albany such as oysters, strawberries, honey and damper, along with a cup of tea or coffee. You will not be disappointed! Thank you Jack, we really enjoyed ourselves.

The Kalgan river is teaming with wildlife! Big ospreys birds nests as they dive for fish, lots of black bream, mulloway, black cockatoos and kangeroos!
Luke Pens trail is great for hikers and there’s plenty of bends in the river for picnics or reading a book.
Huge trees!!!!
Nice clean water so swimming is recommended.
Upper and lower bridges great for fishing or find a small beach to drop a line in

It's bigger than I thought
Dec. 2020
The river is big and long , we did the river trip on the Kalgan Queen which was a great trip and we did a car trip to the end of the road and then a couple of the bush walks along the bank
It's a nice place to meander through , plenty of birdlife , a couple were fishing and catching Bream which looked nice

A pleasure to paddle
Oct. 2020
The Kalgan River was first explored by the Frenchman Nicolas Baudin, in the ship Geographe. The river rises in the Stirling Ranges and enters the sea at Oyster Harbour, near Albany. The Kalgan is 140 kms (87 miles) long. It's a pleasure to paddle, much of it is in its natural state and wildlife in abundant.

We highly recommend sailing on the Kalgan Queen with Captain Jack to see the pretty scenery and wildlife, including Sea Eagles and Osprey and a dancing pelican and kangaroos up close. You'll have a great time on the river!
