Pearling Experience

Take to the skies late morning and enjoy the breathtaking view of Sydney’s neighbouring harbour where the Pittwater and Hawkesbury River converge. Touch down on the Hawkesbury River near Mooney Mooney where you will be greeted by pearl farm staff and transferred to the Shellar Door, where your world of pearls awaits.

From the Headquarters to Pearls of Australia, you will cruise the scenic waterways of the Hawkesbury and discover the local aquaculture industry of oysters and pearls. Back at the newly opened Shellar Door, you will be immersed in the story of Australian pearls, from the original pearl shellers, to the tumultuous modern cultured pearl industry. Incorporating locally grown lustrous Akoya pearls from Broken Bay, and large South Sea pearls from Cygnet Bay near Broome, experience pearls being harvested, get hands-on with pearl grading and valuation, and meet the team who reveal the intricacies of pearl farming.

Take in the stunning views of the aptly named Spectacle Island as you sit back with a refreshment in hand and enjoy your choice of ‘Pearler’s Platter’ featuring Sydney Rock Oysters and the rare delicacy: pearl meat.
On your return flight, soar over the Harbour Bridge and Opera House before landing back at Rose Bay, completing a memorable and adventurous day at one of Sydney’s hidden gems – Broken Bay Pearl Farm.
