Fodor's Expert Review Willie Creek Pearl Farm

Broome Farm/Ranch

You can watch demonstrations of the cultured pearling process—including the seeding of a live oyster and a boat ride to the marine farm—at Willie Creek Pearl Farm, located about 38 km (23½ miles) north of Broome. Drive out to the farm yourself (you must make reservations first and a four-wheel-drive vehicle is recommended on this unsealed road), or join a five-hour bus tour that'll pick you up and bring you back to your in-town accommodation. There's also the option of taking a scenic helicopter ride while on the property for an additional fee, and tours offer breakfast (A$25 more per person) and lunch add-ons (A$30 more per person) depending on the time of day you visit. At the end of the tour, you'll have a chance to view and try on gorgeous pearl necklaces worth more than A$20,000 and peruse the gift shop.
