Your informative and knowledgeable guide will collect you before heading north to the waterfront region of Mooney Mooney, approximately 1 hour from Sydney. Our destination is NSW’s only pearl farm, established in 2003, but it has only now, for the first time in 15 years opened its doors to allow a unique insight into the culture of Pearl Farming. Akoya Pearls from Broken Bay are world famous for their very high lustre and unique colours and this is an extremely rare chance to get hands-on with a portion of the harvest of pearls from both WA and NSW.
This unique 2.hour experience will allow you to meet the people behind the pearls as they share their expertise with passion as you delve into this unique and Australian industry. You will enjoy an introduction by your Pearl Farm guide before boarding our tour vessel and cruising to the oyster farm.
