We were picked up from our hotel and dropped back. To the pearl farm is about a 40 minute drive along tar and corrugated dirt road. Our driver was Lance who was good value. Great sense of humour. Information about the pearls was very interesting. Went out in the boat to see some pearl shells in the water and there... More

I was transported to Willie Creek by helicopter and I would highly recommend this. The view over Cable Beach was just spectacular and I saw several huge manta rays. As you fly into Willie Creek itself, you really get a feel for the landscape. I had some time to browse in the showroom before heading to the Gazebo for a... More

We had so much fun on this tour and we learnt so much!! We did the self-drive tour which was great it isn't that far from Broome town at all. The guides were very informative and new everything about the oysters and the pearl making process. We enjoyed the boat tour also. Was a great day.

A beautiful setting, could do with a cafe so you can enjoy a drink and relax. If the weather has been dry, a car will get there easily. Don't believe you need a small 4wd!

An extremely well run and informative tour. We were picked up by their bus from our hotel and enjoyed a very informative talk from the driver on the history of pearling in the Broome area. The guides at the pearl farm were exceptional, including quite a bit of humour in the explanation of pearl farming. This tour is an absolute... More

We visited this Pearl Farm while staying in Broome, while it isn’t a fully operational pearl farm as such it does offer an interesting insight into how pearls are grown & cultured. The oysters on show here are ones that have been brought in from the real farm offshore for rehabilitation or because they had some disease they didn’t want... More

You arrive at Willie Creek Pearl Farm a novice and leave an expert. Very informative and interactive sessions where you actually see and touch the real live oyster. Scenery is spectacular too.

What's not to like about Willie Creek Pearls???? Following an informative trip out to the farm with a little extra sight seeing on the way,, we were greeted warmly & shown to an outdoor (covered roof to protect from the sun) theaterette where a fascinating talk was given on How Pearls a Made. We actually got to handle the oyster... More
