Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was a very nice day out. Farm tour was fun and Ian kept it very engaging. We enjoyed the oyster tasting session just as much.

All the staff are great and pricing is very fair :)

We had a wonderful morning at Broken Bay Pearl Farm, leaning about Akoya & South Sea pearls with Merina, who was very knowledgeable, cruising to the oyster leases with Jack, learning lots about the area & finally tasting, oysters so fresh!

We had a fantastic time and a full tour including lunch, boat tour of the oyster bed, pearl grading and pearl farming lecture. The lunch was superb - oysters and a charcuterie platter, with good Australian wine. The staff was knowledgeable and attentive, and we learned a lot.

We went on the Farm cruise and did the Secrets of Pearling before hand.
All of the staff were extremely knowledgeable and made the day such a pleasant experience for us, it was a great blend of relaxed and informative - we learnt a lot!
Even adopted a pearl to take home.
Would highly recommend.

What an amazing morning out. Just at the fringes of Sydney and locally for us (we live in the Central Coast).
We took all the excursion, unfortunately the oysters degustation was not available on the day but the other three tours were fun, specially the cruise.

The staff member Megan was fantastic in giving us such an informative talk on how the pearls are harvested. Such a process involved which we knew nothing about. Found it so interesting. Just disappointed with the bad weather that we didn’t do the boat trip. Would have loved to have done that but perhaps next time. All staff were so friendly & very helpful in whatever you asked them. Would definitely visit again. Many thanks Angela S

We spent a delightful morning with the Broken Bay Pearl & Oyster Farm Tour. Firstly, we received an expert introduction to the pearl and oyster industry , encompassing all aspects of the business. This was most informative and professionally delivered by Jack. We then hopped on the tour boat and headed up the beautiful Hawkesbury River with Sibelle who also gave us an excellent run down of both the pearl and oyster practices and the picturesque landscapes we were passing by. It was hard to resist the lovely jewelry on display at the Shellar Door. We definitely recommend this experience.

We did the Farm cruise and Pearl grading tours. Both were great, learnt so much and now have a greater respect for the Pearl.
