Pearl Divers Quarters, 136 kms beyond Broome, are poignant in style, location and aspect. To say these private rooms are on the waterfront is an understatement. At high tide you'll want to throw a fishing line out the window, and you'll hear our resident pair of Pied Oystercatchers call the flood with their distinctive 'chirp chirp'. First light of the new day will stream across the bay and through your window as piccaninny dawn produces a flare of striking pink and orange hues before sunrise.

The space
Approximately 1.5 hours drive from Broome are the 5 private waterfront rooms in the Pearl Divers Quarters, a compact oceanside residence that was once the welcome lodging of pearl divers at the Arrow Pearling Base.

The 5 rooms are side by side and form part of the dedicated accommodation building that is adjacent to (& a short walk from) the active, shared kitchen/dining room. Close by is the communal building containing laundry, bathroom cubicles, showers, toilets and wash basins, also shared by other guests and Pearling Base crew.

There are also 5 rooms on the garden side of this accommodation building and the doors open in to the same shared breezeway. Guests staying in the garden rooms will be sharing the same communal amenities.

The distinct design character of the Pearling Base buildings comes from the West Australian Pearl Farm style, reflecting the practical capture of oceanic winds and maximised shade.

Bed linen and towels are provided. Each Pearl Divers Quarter’s room is a simple, standardised space with a queen size bed. It’s possible to fit a camping stretcher-bed in the room if you have an extra person in your group. We can set up the bed with linen for an additional $50 per night.

External shutters are integrated in to the colorbond steel facades of the structures and transform what can be completely closed up buildings in to bright spaces, with exceptional views across the bay.

Beyond the shutters are glass windows with a ‘slide to open’ system, so the subtle sounds of the sea can be heard.

Wooden louvres compliment the tropical building style, along with ceiling fan and terracotta tiles on the floor. The room is minimalist in furnishing and has split-system air conditioning.

For your food and drinks there is a small fridge in your room and a shared guest fridge in the main kitchen. Your dry stores can be stowed in the main kitchen area for your easy access. You can use the cooking appliances available in the shared kitchen and you will find all other aids to cooking and dining supplied there for your use.

Where you’ll be

Dampier Peninsula, Broome, Western Australia, Australia

Located on the shores of Beagle Bay, 135 kms north of the Broome turn-off to the Cape Leveque Rd, the Pearl Divers Quarters are a great solution for oceanside accommodation in the area.

The Arrow Pearling Base is one of a kind on the Mid Dampier Peninsula. Most activities up here are based around the water, including the whale migration (winter months), catching fish, beach walks, swimming, getting to know the rare birds that frequent the inter-tidal zone, stargazing or just enjoying special moments of stillness in a quiet place, where the bushland and the ocean are equally amazing.

Anyone keen to catch a fish is welcome to enquire about using our fishing rods. We have crab hooks too - the Dampier Peninsula is famous for the big tasty mud crab.

We are located in close proximity to the famous Beagle Bay Church, with the pearl shell altar. Guests staying in the Pearl Divers Quarters may like to explore sites of interest around the Dampier Peninsula by 4wd.

As it is a remote location, Telstra is the only telephone and data service accessible. There is no wi-fi at the Pearling Base.

During your stay

As we are in a remote location, either myself, a family member or one of our team will be available around the clock to attend to any questions or concerns guests may have during their stay.

If you feel like looking around we can let you know about things to do in the area. Birdwatching is a favourite and everyone enjoys beach walks and shell collecting along our secluded beaches.

Depending on the tide, fishing is enjoyed from the rocks out the front, from the beach or at the boat ramp.
