Cygnet Bay, hidden vacation gem …

My first visit to the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm was a most enjoyable affair, playing the tourist with family at this beautiful Bay about 200km north of Broome. A number of boating tours are offered each day during the season. Click to enlarge:

Glamping, a great way to vacation:dsc03174 cygnet-bay-127 cygnet-bay-147dsc03173dsc03137 dsc03138

Bruce Wiggan is a pearl shell artist whose family is one of the original inhabitants of the area and several generations have been employed here. Here is his work-load and his studio workshop:
