WHAT TO EXPECT

 

Located just 38kms north of Broome, join the team and discover the journey of the Australian South Sea Cultured Pearl from shell to showroom amidst the magnificent Kimberley landscape. With ever-changing scenery and an array of things to do, Willie Creek Pearl Farm offers a fantastic day out.

 

The tides, temperature and nutrient-rich waters of the area make it the perfect environment to see the pearl-producing Pinctada maxima oyster in its natural habitat. The crystal clear waters and mangrove-lined banks of Willie Creek Pearl Farm are home to all kinds of wildlife, from barramundi to brolgas and even a few saltwater crocs! 

 

This award-winning tour gives a unique insight into the fascinating process of modern cultured pearl farming. Enjoy a very warm welcome, then learn about the collection and spawning of oysters in the purpose-built hatchery, appreciate the delicate operations of seeding and harvesting oysters, understand the value of pearls and insights into the creation of stunning jewellery.

 

You will enjoy a boat ride on the beautiful azure waters of Willie Creek and view live oysters suspended in their natural environment amongst the native flora and fauna.

 

Then, have fun in the beautiful showroom, trying on the fabulous pearls with personalised service. It's the perfect place to purchase a piece of Broome to take home with you as the ultimate souvenir or gift.

 

You can choose to visit the farm for a tour via a self-drive option (4WD recommended), or enjoy the convenience of air-conditioned transfers from Broome, letting you really experience the colours of the Kimberley.  

 

All tours include delicious morning or afternoon tea. For selected tours, you can also add on an optional lunch platter that includes a glass of beer, wine, or soft drink. The menu offers a choice of seafood, vegetarian, or meat-inclusive platters, each served with crusty bread.
