We very much enjoyed the interesting & informative commentary . Loved the beautiful coloured creek water. Got to model the pearls worth $40k. What a buzz. Lovely barramundi lunch Very enjoyable tour.

We drove out to the Pearl Farm as we still had a 4WD hire car. It was an easy 40 min drive - the last few km on unsealed roads. The morning started with a fascinating 'lesson' all about pearl farming and oyster anatomy! Sonia was brilliant as our teacher. Very amusing as well as highly knowledgable. After a tea... More

On disembarking in Broome from our Kimberley cruise, this was offered as an option and we are so glad we took this tour. We were picked up from our cruise ship and driven to the pearl farm. There we were met by Emma who was both informative and entertaining. The process of pearling was explained in detail. The damper morning... More

We did a self drive tour of Willie Creek Pearl Farm. This was my second visit, the last one being about 10 years ago. A very professionally organised tour of how pearls are grown. Esther, our guide, and Dave the boat skipper,impressed us with their knowledge of the industry and the environment. We were all issued with name tags on... More

Our driver, Lance, was consistently entertaining but more importantly, made each passenger feel welcome and important. He greeted each of us personally and asked where we were from. The presentation on the pearl industry was given by Emma, who did a great job of giving information in an entertaining way. The boat ride was really enjoyable - there are 3... More

Gary the guide to the creek was very informative and very good at offering interesting information. Nothing was too much trouble. The tour itself is very good and informative. The tour guide at the farm was very engaging and added a fair bit of humour. I was very excited to compelete the helicopter ride, just wished it was longer. Overall... More

Fantastic half day trip. Amazing driver Gary/gav who was an absolute wealth of knowledge and added so much interesting information to the history of Broome and wider WA. Emma at the farm was also fantastic! Highly recommend if in Broome.

I usually avoid blatant tourist attractions, especially ones with a sales room at the end and I already knew a lot about pearl production, being somewhat of a jewelry collector and having visited Tahiti. But, I learned lots about pearls and about the history of the Broome area. As for the pearling, there were hands on items and the best... More

A crash course in Pearls. Very informative and an interesting introduction to who- what - where - and how pearls are farmed. Had the initial impression that we were visiting a working Pearl farm operation, Alas, its a Mickey Mouse Tourist attraction that ticks most of the boxes. Of course, the final time is spent in the Show Room, looking... More
