Visit a working pearl farm
In 2016 Cygnet Bay is celebrating 70 years in the pearling industry, a remarkable feat in a once-thriving industry that is now made up of just three pearl producers.
Originally established to collect mother-of-pearl, this small family-run operation progressed to become the first all Australian owned company cultivating cultured pearls including the world’s largest fine quality round pearl, harvested at the farm in 2004.
This land-based tour gives visitors an insight into the fascinating history of pearling in Cygnet Bay and how we cultivate some of the most sort after and beautiful pearls in the world. During our Pearl Harvest season witness our experienced technicians seeding and harvesting our next crop of Cygnet Bay Pearls- but be sure to check ahead as this is only on certain days and times.
