  An original pearling lugger
by iandsmith

This attraction opened in early 1999 and has developed into one of the towns most talked about tours and has brought back to life the history and heritage of the early pioneering days.
A choice of two experiences are available. The day tour which takes and hour and 15 minutes, or the ultimate evening tour which features the tasting of exotic pearl shell meat dishes, a rare delicacy considering it sells for $700 per kilo in Japan!
This special evening tour not only includes a first hand insight into the world of pearling, but the opportunity to view one of Broome`s best collections of loose Australian South Sea Pearls, which are naturally available for purchase.
Pearl Luggers is situated in the heart of Chinatown, Broome and features two beautifully restored Broome built pearling luggers as well as an exciting collection of early pearling equipment.
It's easy to find, just drive along Dampier Terrace and you'll see the boats eventually.
