Broken Bay Pearl Farm
Pearls of Australia offers tours to the only pearl farm on the East Coast of the country where the world's rarest and most valuable Akoya pearls are grown at Broken Bay Pearl Farm.
This brand-new experience invites you to their Shellar door – a revamped Oyster Shed in Mooney Mooney alongside the Hawkesbury River, where you can experience an authentic working pearl farm. Board their Oyster Punt ‘Rose’ to share the story of their locally grown pearls.
Before departing, your guide will take you through a short theatre presentation that highlights the colourful history of pearling in Australia.
On board the vessel, explore the incredible local marine wilderness where iconic pelicans and abundant fish are a living display of the thriving marine ecosystem – home to the world-class pearls.
