Oyster Harbour, Western Australia
Oyster Harbour is a permanently open estuary, which covers an area of 15.6 square kilometres (6 sq mi) near Albany, Western Australia.

A significant number of waterbirds use the harbour for feeding. The place is currently a family tourist center. Oyster Harbour is fed by the King and Kalgan Rivers and discharges into King George Sound.
