Broken Bay Pearl Farm

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

Pearls of Australia offers tours to the only pearl farm in New South Wales where the world’s rarest and most valuable Akoya pearls are grown at Broken Bay Pearl Farm.

This experience invites you to their Shellar door – a revamped Oyster Shed in Mooney Mooney, alongside the Hawkesbury River, where you can experience an authentic pearl farm.

Your guide will take you through a short theatre presentation that highlights the colourful history of pearling in Australia before cruising to one of the pearl oyster leases on the Hawkesbury River. Onboard 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. You’ll meet the pearling team who reveal the intricacies of pearl farming, and once back on land you’re invited to join them in the grading room where they’ll share with you a range of pearls from the farm’s harvest. Here you’ll learn how pearls are graded by the seven virtues that underpin the value of these farm-direct Pearls of Australia.

Wander through their Shellar door which showcases their beautiful pearl jewellery and Indigenous artwork for sale.
