Lovely place but so pleased I spent the money to do the tour. Learnt so much about pearl farming & going on the little boat around to the farms was a highlight. Not because of the oysters but because of the interesting water views & diverse nature. Be warned if taking your own car out there, it is 4wheel drive... More

We couldn't have wanted more. The trip out through the red terrain, to a very friendly welcome with morning tea followed by a very informative explanation of the pearling industry, relaxing and further info on this unique part of N.W. Australia

We had a very interesting bus driver who made the drive out to Willie Creek on a fairly rough red road an interesting drive. The attractive oasis at Willie Creek, a former Pearl farm, but now a tourist facility is sited overlooking the inlet of Willie Creek with sandbars and the ocean in the distance. Guests are directed to a... More

Went to see how salt water pearls were farmed. Was amazed and duly educated by the process. There was a demonstration and a boat ride out to the lagoon where they pulled up the oysters and showed how the pearls were grown. Afterwards, we shopped for our very own salt water pearls at the shop onsite. We were shown how... More

Had a wonderful tour guide - Seve - who was very amusing and very informative, especially since he had only been doing guiding there for 6 weeks, and is from Ireland. The boat tour is interesting, the boat driver was a little eccentric, and lacked the humour of the tour guide.

We found this tour provides excellent information on the pearl industry and what you should look for when buying pearls. A great idea to do this tour before you buy! Lunch was also very good. Ben and both Garys were great guides.

The information provided regarding the farming of pearls was most informative and very interesting. The young lady who did the talk knew her subject well and presented the details in a professional manner. The boat trip to the pearl field was entertaining and provided a good knowledge of the basics of the industry. The shop had a lot of different... More

I went on this tour to learn something about the pearling industry but got a whole lot more. The bus driver was really knowledgable about local history and the environment so that was an unexpected bonus. The visit to Willie Creek was wonderful.

Enjoyed the history and the presentation great to understand the process and the work involved. Was picked up by a small charter bus which made it easy to get to the farm and return with no hassle, great outing.
