On this 30-minute discovery session you will learn of the journey an Australian pearl takes and the risks involved to produce a gem worthy of jewellery. Before beginning your harvest, make yourself known to one of our friendly staff who will direct you into the harvest room where you will perch up overlooking the beautiful Swan River.

Your guide will firstly fill you in on the background of Willie Creek Pearls and how the pearling industry is structured here in Western Australia. Next, enjoy an interactive presentation detailing the intricacies of pearl farming off the coast of Broome. This includes examples of specialist equipment used on the pearl farm. You will be amazed at the process each oyster goes through in hope of producing a stunning pearl for jewellery!

Your guide will open the oyster right in front of you and extract the pearl from the inside of the oyster. It is fascinating seeing a beautiful pearl emerge from a not-so-beautiful oyster. 

A guided tour of the showroom and demonstration of different types of pearls will cap off your harvest experience. You are welcome to ask as many questions as you’d like and leave with a whole new outlook on pearling and pearls.
