Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm

Situated on the Dampier Peninsula, a 2.5 hour drive north of Broome is Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm.

In 2009 Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm opened its doors to the public, to allow guests to not only discover what it takes to grow a pearl, but to offer the opportunity to view and purchase pearls directly from the waters in which they were nurtured. All with the backdrop of the extraordinary Kimberley coast.

From humble beginnings Cygnet Bay has gradually grown its tourism facilities to incorporate its own boutique showroom, licensed restaurant with sweeping verandas and an infinity pool overlooking the beautiful Buccaneer Archipelago.

Its accommodation includes safari tents with ensuite, renovated historically listed pearler’s shacks and the premium Master Pearler’s Retreat, a secluded 3 bedroom ‘beach shack’ with magnificent views over its own private beach – the quintessential barefoot luxury experience.

The farm experience allows guests to be guided behind-the-scenes of the pearl operations where they’ll learn the history of pearls in Australia, see a pearl being harvested and learn about grading the pearl.

Being located in the heartland of Bardi-Jawi country, the local Aboriginal people who are still practicing some of the world’s most ancient traditional customs, Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm also offers guests a valuable cultural experience in partnership with traditional owners.

Cygnet Bay also shares its location with some of the world’s most magnificent natural wonders, including the Buccaneer Archipelago, a cluster of more than 1,000 islands in the pristine remote Kimberley coast with the world’s fastest ocean currents, and giant tides which reveal a mid-ocean waterfall. This has led to a range of marine eco-tours that showcase these unique aspects including the Giant Tides and Waterfall Reef Sea Safaris, additional to scenic flights from the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm airstrip over the Horizontal Falls.

Join 3rd generation pearl farmer and Marine Biologist James Brown on a 1-week discovery of the Australian Pearl, from Broken Bay Pearl Farm (1 hour north of Sydney) to Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm (2.5hrs north of Broome) via Shinju Matsuri Festival of the Pearl in Broome, WA.

Was really professionally run and incredibly informative. Penny and James have such a passion for the industry, and that came across in the delivery of the day.

While the professionalism food and service was that of a fine resort they also didn’t mind our kids taking over the place and were just so lovely and accommodating! Not to be missed.
