Experience some of Broome’s unique culture with Shinju Matsuri, or the Festival of the Pearl, a true Broome institution!
Featuring an incredible kaleidoscope of events, Shinju Matsuri pays tribute to our heritage and culture as well as showcasing the multitude of phenomenal talent we have up here.
For many years now the Australian South Sea Pearl has been the prize rather than the mother of pearl. September traditionally marks the end of the pearl harvest season, when the fortunes of the pearl farmer are told. What better time to celebrate?
Shinju Matsuri will tempt your senses with an exciting whirlwind of colour, sound, taste and smell as the community shares this beautiful locale with the world and the people who call it home.
