We did the Willie Creek Pearl farm tour and lunch today and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our driver Matt was informative on the journey to the farm and our tour guide Megan was a star! Megan was full of useful facts on pearl farming and a laugh a minute. Her quirky, happy narrative made the tour extra special. Who realised there... More

Picked up from our resort by Les who was a hoot, lots of great info and a top driver. Emma was our guide at the farm, she was a joy! She informed us with lots of humor, fun and managed to keep everyone interested-no one fell asleep! After our talk there was morning tea and then a short boat ride.... More

We visited the Pearl Farm today and had a wonderful experience learning about how beautiful pearls are formed, and grow. Bryce drove us from our Motel to the farm and gave a very informative description of the colourful sights along the sometimes dusty and bumpy, but picturesque road. Ben's entertaining presentation was lots of fun and he did a wonderful... More

Chose to use the 'pick up' option. We arrived into Willie Creek and were welcomed by a staff member who gave us a talk on pearls and pearl farming. Found it pretty informative. After refreshments of juice and damper we were put on a boat. Hardly any words about pearl farming the guide pointed out birds and a crocodile. The... More

The tour really could have been done in town. Its just a talk, a ride on a boat to a few "planted" oysters to demonstrate a few techniques (the real farm is further up the coast), then a trip to the shop. Still, the colours made the trip enjoyable, particularly as we did the 70 dollar helicopter ride (which you... More

We drove ourselves to Willie Creek after booking a tour while at Broome. The presenter did a terrific job. She made her talk both informative and amusing. We had a short boat trip around the creek area which is very scenic. I would have liked to leave with a nice string of pearls but ........

On a recent trip to Broome with my two best friends, Willie Creek Pearl Farm was recommended as a great place to visit. And it's true. I wasn't sure what to expect from a tour of a pearl farm. If anything I thought it would just be looking around at where they're farmed & a bit of a look in... More

I joined a tour to Wilie Creek Pearl Farm. Our driver was very good and gave an interesting commentary on the way there. We were met by Esther who gave an outstanding presentation on the anatomy of the pearl oyster ("pinctada maxima?? sic?/) using a live oyster to show all the parts of the oyster. Esther is a born teacher... More
