Broome and Cygnet Bay is in a tropical climate zone. Seasons are typically described as the wet season (October to April) or the dry season (April to October), although Bardi and other First Nations typically recognise six seasons. The wet season is categorised by hot days and nights, high humidity, lightning storms and flash flooding. During the wet season, Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm has a reduced tours and accommodation offering. The dry season brings pleasant warm days and cool nights and is the typical tourist season.

Cygnet Bay is located on a pristine coastline with ancient mangroves and remnant rainforests. We are fortunate to share this country with much wildlife in their natural habitat. Be aware that wildlife includes birds, frogs, lizards, snakes, bats, mosquitoes, sandflies, spiders, insects, crabs, oysters, fish, octopus, stingrays, turtles, whales, dolphins, crocodiles, sharks, dugongs, and many others. Our team work to ensure that guests have an unforgettable experience and are safe from dangerous wildlife encounters.
