Willie Creek Pearls is a West­ern Aus­tralian fam­i­ly busi­ness cel­e­brat­ing over 30 years of ser­vice excel­lence. They sus­tain­ably pro­duce the best pearls in the world: Aus­tralian South Sea Pearls, and offer com­plete pearl expe­ri­ences from shell to show­room. Their mul­ti-award win­ning tours include the Willie Creek Pearl Farm Tour, Pearl Lug­gers, Heli­copter flights, Live Pearl Har­vests and much more. Willie Creek Pearls edu­cate and inspire thou­sands of vis­i­tors each year to uncov­er the his­to­ry, mys­tery and sto­ry of the Pearling indus­try. From the mag­nif­i­cent Kim­ber­ley land­scape to the array of things to see and do, a day at Willie Creek Pearl Farm is a must-do expe­ri­ence and one you will remem­ber for years to come. At select­ed tour times, guests can also enjoy a pre-booked lunch at Har­vest Café (sub­ject to sea­son­al­i­ty). Lunch is served after the tour con­cludes. Please refer to the pre-booked lunch menu for options. The Pearl Lug­gers muse­um cap­ti­vates vis­i­tors with 150 years of unique mar­itime and pearling his­to­ry. Show­cas­ing some of the most valu­able and rare pearling, div­ing and moth­er of pearl arti­facts and archival footage, Pearl Lug­gers trans­ports vis­i­tors back in time to an era of coura­geous men and women who lived a life of dan­ger, for­tune and adventure. 

Willie Creek Pearls is owned and oper­at­ed by the Ban­field Fam­i­ly. The Ban­field fam­i­ly moved to Broome in 1989, when Lord McAlpine was devel­op­ing the town. They pur­chased Broome Buslines, and suc­cess­ful­ly devel­oped it into a tour com­pa­ny offer­ing coach tours through­out the Kim­ber­ley. After oper­at­ing tours to Willie Creek, they acquired the Pearl Farm.

Since then they have expand­ed oper­a­tions to include com­mer­cial pearling and the his­tor­i­cal Pearl Lug­gers. Through these oper­a­tions, they deliv­er an enter­tain­ing, mem­o­rable and com­plete pearl expe­ri­ence, pro­vid­ing an insight into the home and sto­ry behind the Pearl of West­ern Australia.
