Broken Bay Pearl Farm
New South Wales' only pearl farm is home to the precious akoya pearl.
Found on the Hawkesbury River, New South Wales' only pearl farm is considered one of the Central Coast's best kept secrets. Not only can you drop in for a visit to the Shellar Door in Mooney Mooney, but you can also join a tour with a pearl farmer to learn all about the precious glistening beauties. Running from Thursdays to Tuesdays, each tour includes a cruise on the river and a better understanding of the akoya pearl's unique properties — including its rare natural colourings. Tours start from $85 per adult and last two hours.
