Located on the Nullagine River 189 km north of Newman, is the town of Nullagine. The town takes its name from the local Aboriginal name for the river that runs through its centre.

The reserve comprises an area of approximately 4,800 hectares and was vested in the Shire of East Pilbara in 1985. As the Cape Keraudren Coastal Reserve is a low-key recreational area, disturbance to the environment has been kept to a minimum. For this reason, NO DOGS are allowed on the Reserve. The closest water supply is at Pardoo Roadhouse situated on the Great Northern Highway near the entrance to the Cape.
Kalgan Pool is situated deep in the eastern end of the Ophthalmia Range. Much of the journey to the gorge is in/along the Kalgan Creek water course which requires a 4WD to negotiate due to loose shale, river rock, and stretches of water. Access to this site is 4WD only with snorkel due to water crossings.
