Being in Broome there is a lot of history on pearl lugging so to see how it's done and what's involved is very interesting. Had a great day.

Great overview of the way that the pearls are farmed and very informative. Also, great retail opportunity (if you want it). I now have a beautiful souvenir of my Broome visits (I've been twice) that I can enjoy and have to bring back memories

We were picked up from our accommodation by mini bus. Bryce our tour guide was so professional and knowledgable about everything around us. The drive was 40 mins to the farm and Bryce gave an amazing commentary all the way. This tour is simply the first that should be done when landing in Broome. The amazing landscape and colours were...

The talk they do using live oyster is really quite something to experience. It gives you a greater understanding and appreciation of Pearls. They also take you out on a boat ride around the area and offer Helicopter rides for $70 per person extra which is worth it for the views even though it is only 6mins. Definitely do the... More

We were picked up from our resort by a very informative mini bus driver. We roared down red dirt unmade roads where the kids in the back were regularly airborne (to their delight). Another very interesting talk about pearls & pearl farming followed. Morning tea was freshly baked beer damper. Yummm! Then a boat cruise down the turquoise waters of... More

Very well run and fun tour even if you are not interested in pearls. Our driver was very knowledgeable about Broome and surrounds although his delivery was devoid of any humour. The pearl farm process was explained in detail with lots of examples of various stages of the oyster's life. This was followed by home made damper and beverage and... More

We booked this through our hotel. The cost of the visit which includes transport to and back is a bit pricey, but driver is a lovely bloke. Great afternoon tea if damper. The explanation of the pearl culture process was superb. The boat tide in Willie Creek was fun (but hot!!). Good showroom. Little pressure to buy- staff and guides... More

We were picked up at our hotel by a friendly driver. He gave us a lot of information about the land and the pearls. Once at the farm, all we needed to know about the pearls was brought to us in a fun way. The boat ride in the end was really nice!
