Broome: Unique 1.5-Hour Pearling History Tour

1. Broome: Unique 1.5-Hour Pearling History Tour

This unique 1 hour tour offers a guided commentary on Broome’s pearling history. Travel back in time to an era of courageous men who lived a life of danger, fortune and adventure. Visitors are captivated as 150 years of Broome’s unique maritime and pearling heritage unfolds in the very environment where the history was made, amongst the mangroves on the foreshore of Roebuck Bay’s Dampier Creek. Pearl Luggers is located right in the heart of ‘Chinatown’ and features a fully rigged and restored pearl lugger surrounded by a replica inter-tidal jetty and tenders store. It is without doubt the closest link to the pearling era of long ago where daily life ebbed and flowed with the comings and goings of the great pearl luggers fleets.

Our Guide Stuart was brilliant, very knowledgeable and used oral and video presentations very effectively. The sessions allowed for handling of historical artifacts and the tasting of pearl shell meat in the Showroom was also enjoyable.

This was a fabulous experience, full of compassionation- great meat!

I had a great time, staff were informative and helpful with a charming sense of humour. Thoroughly enjoyed our “sample” of peal meat.

Excellent information and equipment given. Comfortable seating during the display and information sessions

An interesting talk if you do not know the history of Broome. Well delivered.

Should be compulsory! Well worth doing. Lots of info not found elsewhere.
