There is also an option for Self-drive (4WD is recommended).
A unique insight into the modern cultured pearl farming process.
Located just 38 kilometres north of Broome, Willie Creek Pearl Farm is perfectly situated on the scenic and protected tidal estuary of Willie Creek. With ever changing scenery, wildlife and an array of things to do, Willie Creek offers a fantastic day out.
Our award-winning tour shows visitors first-hand how we produce pearls at our commercial sea-lease. Guides accompany visitors all the way and show the process of culturing pearls from collection and spawning of oysters in our hatchery through to harvesting and the final product, stunning pearl jewellery.
A demonstration using a live pearl oyster is given to reveal the technical and complex operation involved in starting the pearl process. Visitors are also taken out by boat to view farming operations on the water inside Willie Creek itself. At selected tour times, guests can also enjoy a pre-booked lunch or breakfast at Harvest (subject to seasonality). Lunch is served after the tour concludes and breakfast is served prior.
