The Luke Pen Walk begins at the gate of the property (East Bank Rd entry) and meanders along the Kalgan River for a distance of 7.4 km to the Upper Kalgan Bridge.

A charming cottage with beautiful garden in a tranquil setting comfortably within range of Albany and surrounds. Excellent attention to detail, cleanliness and effort put into a budget-priced accommodation, with well-stocked self-catering kitchen and personalized touches like fruit, milk and freshly-baked fruit loaf provided is what one would expect from a luxury offering.

Spectacular property
Riverdale 1898 is a beaufitul cottage on a spectacular property, the best place to unwind and forget about our busy day to day lives. A short drive in to Albany for restaurants and supplies but far enough away to have optimal peace and quiet. I cant wait to go back again.

charming and clean
We came here for our anniversary and fell in love with the place! It’s cozy, charming and clean. We were pleasantly greeted with freshly baked bread, fruits, farm eggs and milk. Firewood and kindling were all chopped and ready to go too. When we first arrived, Jim came down to say hi and check if we needed help with anything. Location is also pretty good. We drove via an internal shortcut across the field and reached Luke Pen Walk where we went for a good hike and did some fishing! A bit further to Albany (about 20 mins) but we enjoyed the remoteness and the views from the fields are gorgeous at sunrises and sunsets.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we hope to come back again.
