The timeless appeal of the exotic pearl has fascinated men and women for centuries. Valued for its beauty and rarity, the jewel of the sea has, throughout the ages, enticed divers to brave the dangers of the deep. The Australian Pearling Exhibition at the Wharf Precinct in Darwin will take you through years of pearling history, from the days of the lugger and hard hat diving, to modern farming and pearl culturing techniques. The exhibition, a time capsule of facts and stories from Australia's Pearl Coast, reveals an industry steeped in mystery, danger and romance. The pearling industry has become the Northern Territory's major fisheries export earner, enjoying an international reputation for producing pearls of the finest quality.
