  • Perth Harvest Your Own Pearl Experience with Refreshments

    1. Perth Harvest Your Own Pearl Experience with Refreshments

    Enjoy refreshments of Margaret River sparkling wine and the rare delicacy of pearl meat canapes as you learn about why the finest pearls in the world grow in Western Australia. Discover the history of pearling to the intricate practices of modern-day cultured pearl farming. You’ll then be invited to harvest your very own pearl, straight from its oyster. Due to the nature of pearl farming, the value of the pearl is unknown until the time it is harvested. The pearl could range from $500 up to $5,000, and is yours to keep. After the pearl has been harvested, learn about the grading process and take the opportunity to have your pearl made into a stunning piece of jewelry.

  • Margaret River: Lake Cave Fully-Guided Tour

    2. Margaret River: Lake Cave Fully-Guided Tour

    Lake Cave, a stunning and perfectly-preserved chamber deep beneath the earth, is a must-see for all visitors to Margaret River. Descend a long staircase through a spectacular sinkhole to the floor of the sunken forest, gazing up at the towering karri trees along the way. Inside the cave, a tranquil lake reflects delicate crystal formations growing from the cave's ceiling. Droplets hang from the tips of straws and stalactites before falling to the floor or into the lake, creating ripples in the water. Marvel at the unique suspended table formation, which weighs several tons and seems to defy gravity as it hovers above the clear lake water. As your guide changes the focus of the light to different features within the cave, incredible views and silhouettes appear etched in the darkness.

    Loved it, would definitely recommend people to visit. The cave was just absolutely beautiful
