Itinerary / more information
Day 1 - Broome, Cygnet Bay Depart Broome this afternoon and journey to Cape Leveque to visit the remote camp of Kooljaman, which is owned and run by the Indigenous Bardi Jawi Communities. Dinner tonight will be accompanied by an Indigenous host at Kooljaman. Later, arrive at Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm and settle in to your unique accommodation for the next two nights.
Day 2 - Cygnet Bay Start your day with breakfast overlooking Cygnet Bay before a Signature Experience. Cygnet Bay is the oldest Australian and family owned pearl farm. It has been operating since 1946 and is still leading the industry with some of the largest and most exquisite pearls in the world. After lunch, take to the water on a Sea Safari and cruise the ancient landscapes of the Buccaneer Archipelago. Watch the sunset on Shell Island before dinner back at Cygnet Bay this evening.
Day 3 - Beagle Bay, Broome Farewell the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm this morning and visit the Ardyaloon Trochus Hatchery & Aquaculture Centre at One Arm Point. Here you will learn about the cultural traditions of the local Bardi Jawi communities and gain a fascinating insight into the Dreamtime. The Bardi Jawi retain a strong connection to their rich culture and saltwater traditions, and you'll learn about the hunting and gathering methods that have been passed down by their ancestors over the years. Afterwards, continue to Beagle Bay, a small Indigenous community that was founded in 1890 by French Trappist monks. Visit the Beagle Bay Church and view its decorative altar. An abundance of mother of pearl shells from local waters have been laid into the plaster, giving it a unique finish. Later, return to Broome as your discovery of Cape Leveque comes to an end this afternoon.
