I want to to take this opportunity to thank you, Carol and Ming for making our visit to your store such a memorable and pleasant time, and to have our daughter and our 3 grandsons present and to have them treated so exceptionally well speaks volumes for the high regard in which we hold Willie Creek Pearls. You have increased our desire to keep travelling back to Broome and Willie Creek.
Keep up the great work

Your loyal customers

Thank you very much, Cheryl and Tony, for writing such an excellent review of your time with Carol and Ming Hui at Willie Creek Pearls, Elizabeth Quay. The importance of keeping the epic story of Broome Pearling strong is something all of the team feel very deeply. That you've been to Broome and have now shared your time with us in Perth and feel motivated to return to Broome, is fantastic! We look forward to welcoming you back to Willie Creek Pearls, perhaps with a cold beer or sparkling glass of wine... Warmest Thanks

We enjoyed a beautiful experience at Willie Creek Pearls Elizabeth Quay and highly recommend the Pearl Masterclass.
After a warm welcome from Michael, and with glass of bubbles in hand, Ming Hui escorted us into the presentation room where we enjoyed a beautiful outlook over the Swan River and an interesting account of the history of pearls in Western Australia.
Trying pearl meat was a highlight, as was learning about pearl farming and the various different elements of what makes a beautiful pearl.
Michael and Ming Hui were lovely, attentive and really went out of their way to create a very special and memorable experience
Next time - the Harvest your own pearl experience!
Thank you both for a fantastic afternoon.

Oh my goodness, Pennym784, you are a charmer! Thank you so much for your kindness - you both were an absolute delight for Ming Hui and I to welcome into our Willie Creek Pearls family, so you are most welcome. Ming Hui is, without any doubt, super pleased to have met you and to have led you into this story full of exploits and curiosity, before landing a pearl. When she reads your review, it will be a cherry on the sundae for her! Now Penny, don't be shy - both come back and have more fun with us, maybe even choosing some petit souvenir and to have a tall, bubbly something in our gorgeous showroom. Until soon, Warmest Regards, Michael

I was gifted for my 40th bday a private Pearl Harvesting experience and I have to say it was one of the most special things I’ve done. The wonderful Carol, was a very experienced and pleasant consultant who ensured this was a moment to remember.

The suspense of waiting to see what your own unique Pearl looks like is very special. Im also proud to be Australian knowing we are being environmentally mindful when Pearl Harvesting. Willie Creek do it right!!

Gift a loved one in your life with a Pearl Harvesting experience - you won’t regret it. Highly recommend.

Thanks again to the team for an unforgettable afternoon.

Jo, thank you so much for this super-wonderful review of your experience harvesting your own Australian South Sea Pearl from Willie Creek Pearl Farm at Elizabeth Quay! Carol is a wonderful host and has access to quite a lot of information, which she shares very nicely. Carol, Ling and I really enjoyed sharing your birthday event with your family and we can't wait to see your gorgeous pearl once it's set onto a pendant - Will, our jeweller, is at the ready. It warms my heart that you have made mention of the environmental soundness that we prioritise at Willie Creek Pearls. Looking after the eco-system is central to our ethics and the results are impressive with regards the success of Broome pearling and the contribution that we consequently make to the Australian economy and jobs for Western Australia. We're as proud of this as you are, and thank you. Have a a lovely week, Jo, and we have a bottle of sparkling in the chiller for your return! Cheers, Michael

My experience of harvesting a pearl at Elizabeth quay was wonderful. Mihoko was an informative and thoughtful guide. She answered all my questions and gave my elderly dad, who was with me, such kind and attentive care. The whole team joined in to educate us about the pearling industry and to present my pearl for wearing in time to take it home with me to Victoria the next afternoon. A great afternoon and a beautiful pearl - with a story - that I will treasure. Thanks to Mihoko, Michael, Carol and Will.

Thank you so much for sharing your kind reflections, betso2017. It’s especially wonderful for us to have welcomed you to Perth all the way from Victoria! Mihoko thought it so special that she shared a family pearl harvest experience with you and your dad. We all think you made a beautiful choice and Will is really happy to have had your Broome pearl with you for the trip back home. Carol and the team will no doubt delight in reading your comments in the morning. Warm Regards, Michael

I was gifted the ‘Harvest Your Own Pearl’ tour at Elizabeth Quay.

Welcomed with a glass of bubbles, we were off to a great start!
Frances walked us through the history of Pearl growing, diving, harvesting and grading in Western Australia and Willie Creek’s current method.
We then got to ‘Harvest Your Own Pearl’ which we got to keep and were educated on the grading methods.
We also enjoyed pearl meat canapés and mango sorbet - delicious.

Once your pearl has been harvested spend some time browsing the stunning show room to choose a setting for your Pearl.

Frances and Michael were extremely knowledgeable and made ours a wonderful experience.

I can’t recommend this enough! A fantastic gift or the perfect way to treat yourself!

Well, Kellymac88, it’s a very easy role we have, spending time in the company of people such as yourself! Frances is okay, isn’t she?! She can stay! I’ll make sure she sees your review and be assured, she’ll get a real kick out of it. The pearl meat is a delicacy that most people will never have the chance to try and we’re so pleased you enjoyed it. I’ll let the folk working on our farm know - it’s so encouraging to hear back from people and your kind words mean a lot to all of us. We all wish you and yours a healthy and very merry Christmas and New Year, Kellymac88!

We did the Harvest your own Pearl tour on the weekend to celebrate my daughter's 15th birthday. The 2 ladies who looked after the 3 of us were so friendly, professional and knowledgeable. They really made it feel like a personal tour with their level of service. Really enjoyed the presentation including harvesting our own pearl and shopping at the end. All with a glass of bubbles and samples of pearl meat and mango sorbet! Highly recommend

Oh! SeashellsSL - thank you so very much! The ladies were so pleased to see your review and appreciate your kind recognition a great deal. For me, it is the most rewarding affirmation, to read a public review sharing the joy you have felt in our "second home!" I cannot tell you how much it means to all of us, perhaps now more than ever, to not only welcome our guests (read "new friends") and share our hospitality, but to thank you in turn for your generosity. Please always remember that you are most welcome to visit again, or contact us at Elizabeth Quay directly, if ever we can be of service.

We undertook the pearl master class and found it extremely rewarding. Mohiko was our guide and she patiently answered all of our questions without a hint of frustration. The whole class from start to end was very interesting and informative. We are lovers of knowledge and the class definitely delivered.

Wow, thank you, Vanditha, for this great review of our Pearl Master Class, led by Mihoko! Straight away, I can tell you that Mihoko is going to be over the moon that you’ve written this. The Willie Creek Pearls family takes enormous pride in being industry leaders and when it comes to sharing expert information with the public about our operational Broome Pearl Farm, Mihoko likes to set a gold standard. Just as importantly, Mihoko knows how to bring all our guests along on the extraordinary journey we travel as our farm crew collect wild shell , nucleate, care and eventually harvest and reseed our beautiful babies! You’d probably agree that these oysters are as remarkable as it gets, right? Many thanks for participating in our Pearl Master Class at Elizabeth Quay and remember that if you ever have questions about some aspect of pearling, you can always contact Mihoko or any member of Team EQ and we will do all we can for you. Warm Regards

This was a wonderful experience as we missed Willie Creek on a tour in Broome as it was a big wet and we couldn't get in.
So Ming our host was full of information regarding the history of the Pearl industry in Broome.
This shop is in a wonderful position on the Swan River.
Ming opened an oyster and showed us where the pearl seed is placed and where the Pearl grows.
It was excellent

The experience at Elizabeth Quay from start to finish was exceptional, the staff were informative, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The history of Willie Creek Pearls, the harvesting and how it has developed over the years was very interesting. We did the experience as part of our pearl wedding anniversary celebrations, the experience is something we will remember for many more years to come. The bubbles and canapés were also fabulous.

I recently surprised my wife with a 'Harvest your own Pearl' experience.The whole experience was fantastic, a very personal and fun time learning about the Pearl industry while enjoying a glass of champagne.
We finished the experience with laughter and a tear (of joy) when my wife using her bare hands extracted the Willie Creek Pearl. We got to keep the Pearl and the Pearl Shell.
I highly recommend this very special experience.

Pat, thank you very much for your response and you should know, you both have a friend for life in Frances! She told us all about your harvest and was so moved that you chose to celebrate J's birthday with us. I'm passing on your kind words to everyone and would like to extend an invitation to drop in for a coffee, when either of you is down at the quay. Very Best Regards, Michael
