Most of our accommodation is set around Divers Creek, traditionally an area for housing our pearling crew, it has been re-purposed with travellers in mind. Diver’s Creek is a 1km drive from the main Pearling Village where our pool, restaurant, reception and pearl gallery are located. Transfers can be arranged with advance notice, although the walk down the red dirt track is a peaceful, nature filled addition to your stay.
The home of the Australian pearl, Cygnet Bay offers you the rare opportunity to purchase pearls direct from the waters in which they were farmed. Dine by candle light overlooking the bay, relax by our infinity pool, view natural phenomenons such as staircase to the moon and Waterfall Reef and discover the world’s largest tropical tides at Broome’s working pearl farm – an absolute must for any trip to Broome and surrounds.
Our restaurant caters for both in-house guests and day visitors to the farm. With sweeping views of the bay from the veranda and a horizon-edged pool our restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our menus draw inspiration from our pearling history with seafood & Asian inspired dishes. The Australian pearling industry was shaped by the many countries & cultures their workers originated from. Malay, Chinese, Filipino, Indonesian & Japanese fusion was common in many households of Broome. The crews of the pearl luggers would often eat whatever was readily available with the hunting knowledge & cultural influence of the local saltwater people ensuring seafood was always a popular menu item. Eating the pearl meat & other parts of the pearl oyster is these days considered a rare delicacy, however this was a staple of the early pearling crews.
