August 25 - September 2 2018
Experience some of Broome’s unique culture with Shinju Matsuri, or the Festival of the Pearl, a true Broome institution!
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 runs from August 25 - September 2 2018 with the Sunset Long Table Dinner, beachside sculptures, art awards, music events and more. Stay tuned for more information on the 2018 programme!
