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

We did the Willie Creek tour on new years Eve. Cost $65 with us self driving in a 4wd. If you need to get there from Broome it's about double the cost per person which seems expensive. Tour was excellent and very informative. Short boat tour to show the oysters and morning tea. Would recommend.

Great ride out to the farm - typical red outback scenery. Driver lovely and full of info. Staff at the farm very down to earth and welcoming. Extremely interesting tour and well worth a visit. Includes info on how pearls are cultivated etc, a boat ride and an optional helicpoter ride which was awesome.

We were collected by Lance the friendly driver. It was a 1 hour trip to Willie Creek Pearl farm but with his repartee it was not only not boring but very informative. On arriving we met Ben who explained with humour all about cultured pearls. His knowledge was excellent. Then we met David the friendly skipper who took us on... More

Our guide, Megan, was fabulous. There was nothing she didn't know about oysters and pearls. Can she talk! She was absolutely delightful. Told us lots of fun stories and kept us totally engaged. The boat trip, captained by Dave was awesome. We learned so much, mostly about respecting our environment and even saw a crocodile! All the staff here were... More

Wow what a great tour. Excellent value for money Megan our host for the tour was knowledgeable and entertaining to say the least. Thank you for making Margaret's visit so special we had a great time and now have a reasonable understanding of why pearls are so expensive. The helicopter ride was a great way to end our tour and...

After being picked up from our Hotel we were driven by mini bus along a mostly corrugated road to the Pearl Farm. We were given an interesting explanation of the operation of the Pearl farm and a welcome morning tea. We were then taken on a short boat ride around the creek with a demonstration of the pearl farming techniques,... More
