Our bus driver, the pearling guide, the old salt running the tour boat, and the helicopter pilot were all mines of information and engaging to boot. I not only learnt alot about the pearl manufacturing process but also about the vegetation and land forms around us on the way to the pearl farm. Worth every penny.

We visited Willie Creek Pearl Farm as an afternoon tour, being picked up by their mini-bus from our Broome motel. On arrival, a young hostess explained the cultured pearl process, with samples, in a clear and humourous way. Then we were taken out by boat to a pseudo pearl farm (the real one is 6Km out to sea) and the... More

I notice lots of reviewers are saying that they drove themselves out to Willie Creek, but I have to say that the part of the trip I almost enjoyed the most was the super informative driver we had out there and back! Garry was fantastic and told us so many amazing things about the area and its history. During the... More

As first time visitors to Willie Creek Pearl Farm, we found the staff to be friendly, informative and engaging, inparticular our tour guide Megan. We found her to be knowlegable and entertaining, with a great sence of humour. We highly recommend this tour for first time Broome visitors. A must do.

We visited Willie Creek Pearl Farm in July 2015 on a 4 hour tour (start to finish), & found it really quite interesting & educational, since I knew very little about how pearls are cultured. The way pearls are valued is also explained well, which is a great help if you decide to purchase anything. No hard sell at all,... More

The farm is well worth a visit - you will know much more about cultured pearls after your visit and there are wonderful pearls to buy. There is also a very enjoyable boat tour to demonstration pearl beds.

Well set up for tourist education and a pretty spot. Staff friendly and naturally pushing sale of pearls. It appears that the site does not actually produce many of its own pearls for sale but worth the visit. Pleasant spot under the trees for lunch and quick heliflight was quite enjoyable.

Nor being really interested in pearls I thought I would not enjoy this tour but I was mistaken. There is so much to learn about how they get the pearls. The optional helicopter flight is worth it.

We drove ourselves out here. The road is ridiculously corrugated and only suitable for 4WD vehicles with strong suspension. There isn't that much to see at the Farm itself, but it does have a sales outlet and cafe for coffee and snacks. No doubt the women will have a good time perusing all of the pearls on display for sale.... More
