The Calliope River is located in Central Queensland, Australia. The river rises in the Calliope Range inland from the industrial port city of Gladstone, flows past the town of Calliope, before emptying into the Pacific Ocean just north of Gladstone. River length is approximately 100 kilometres, with a catchment area of approximately 2230 square kilometres.

Oakey, Paddock and Larcom Creeks are the main tributaries of the river.[1] The major industry in the river area is the raising of beef cattle.[citation needed]

Like others along the tropical coast of Australia, the river contains a rare germ which destroys flesh.[2] The waters of the river may also contain box jellyfish for many kilometres upstream.[3] This venomous, marine animal poses a threat to swimmers.

The Calliope River Historical Village is a true heritage experience which has captured and preserved some of the original buildings from around the Gladstone Region.

Come and spend some time looking at unique and interesting displays, including the Calliope River Railway facility which includes a Queensland Rail coach, two camp wagons and the Yarwun station. Take a drip down memory lane in the Raglan Dance Hall, or visit the country Markets which are held on site, with stall holders from as far away as the Gold Coast selling their wares.

The museum and tours operate daily at a small cost.
