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

The most informative few hours with skipper Jack who has learnt his stuff. Wonderful interaction with the bird life. Could possibly have stopped somewhere a little earlier for toilet stop and stretch of legs for anyone in need. Otherwise, top cruise!

This river provides opportunity for rowing, kayaking, bream fishing, crabbing, photography or walking along the Luke Pen trail and soaking up a beautiful tranquil part of the Great Southern region.

The Kalgan River attracts bird-watchers; many of the birds are endemic to the south-west of Western Australia. The scenic river is also favoured by fishermen. It's also good for kayaking and canoeing. The lower section of the Kalgan is a sunken river valley, with steep hillsides and some granite outcrops. The Kalgan River is 140kms (87 miles) long. Its estuary is in Oyster Harbour, which is permanently connected to King George Sound, near Albany.

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.

This was an outstanding tour enjoyed by all. Brilliant wildlife, outstanding natural beauty and knowledgable host and hostess and aided by “Perch” the pelican. Highly recommend this trip.

A lovely way to spend a few hours or a day just relaxing, kayaking, boating, picnic-ing or just sitting in a deck chair pondering the world.

It’s a great spot to camp or even to go fishing and canoeing. There are kangaroos in their natural habitat, a variety of beautiful birds and kookaburras.

My wife and I paddle here regularly and go fishing along the banks too. The fish are small but they are plentiful and we catch about 30+ every time. All released back. They are bream and even though they can see us still take our bait. This is a beautiful river.

I go to Albany to relax and fish on the Kalgan River, it is such a beautiful spot, there are loads of little places you can fish from.
While I am fishing and taking in the serenity, I see kyakers, small boats and even the Kalgan Queen River Boat go by.
There is an abundance of bird life to see if your interested.
Overall it is the place to see in Albany and I love it.
