We drove out here to see what the farm would be like, the road is a red dirt road that it is best to use a 4wd vehicle on and after 12km we discovered that they are closed on Saturday's. Gorgeous views of the creek but unfortunately we couldn't experience the pearl farm itself which was very disappointing.

Fun and entertaining way to learn about the history of pearls in Broome. Felt welcomed from the moment we arrived, great live demo of seeding pearls, the process of harvesting and a look around the waterways. Funny jokes all day.
