Pearl Harvest Festival
Join Australia’s pearling pioneers, Cygnet Bay, in celebration of their 2022 pearl harvest. The festival, from the 16th – 18th September, immerses you in our 75 years of pearling tradition with a modern twist.
Traditionally celebrated to signify the end of the year’s harvest, Cygnet Bay now offers guests the opportunity to join in the festivities with fun events all weekend long. Champagne sundowners, live music and ‘behind the scenes’ insights into a working pearl farm, family fun day, all culminating in the pearl farm party of the year!
See a selection of our latest pearl harvest on display and purchase pearls direct from the waters they are farmed. Limited accommodation available at the pearl farm with transfers from nearby accommodation available in the evenings.
There are two ticketed events – ‘Stranded in Style’ and the ‘Harvest Party’. Tickets are available online by clicking the link below. Alternatively, check out our program for plenty of free, non-ticketed events happening all weekend.
Program to be released soon.
Stranded in Style
Get ‘Stranded in Style’ when we drop you by boat to a deserted beach. Greeted by the team, champagne in hand, soak up the serenity as you sit around the fire and watch as the light fades from the Kimberley Sky. Tonight is all about getting ‘stranded’, so take the opportunity to wear a beautiful Cygnet Bay pearl strand or jewellery piece for the evening.
This event is in September as part of our Harvest Festival so click below to get your tickets and join in the fun!
Join us for the party of the year. Traditionally held to signify the end of the pearl harvest, Cygnet Bay now opens the party to visitors from all over. Live music, giveaways and some great food will have you up and dancing the night away. Ticket price includes dinner. This is a family friendly event.

Hosted by the Brown family and the Cygnet Bay team, who still call the farm home, we’ll take you back to the golden pearling days where after a hard day’s work we’d all sit down together for a well-deserved meal, a beverage or two and some great conversation! We invite you to join us for a night of excellent food, culminating in a memorable dining experience, ‘Pearler’s style’.
Events running monthly from April – October. See dates and availability below.
Witness the natural phenomenon of ‘Staircase to the Moon’ with great food and even better company. This monthly event happens on the second night of ‘Staircase to the Moon’ at the lookout at Cygnet Bay.

As the final rays of light of the day hit Cygnet Bay, watch as the blues of the ocean deepen and the reds of the rocks glow.
