Kuri Bay was Australia's first South Sea pearl farm, and a working Paspaley pearl farm until about a year ago. It's still owned by Paspaley but jointly managed by Wild Bush Luxury, which specialises in high-end remote wilderness resorts (other properties include Bamurru Plains, Arkaba Station and Sal Salis), and not much has changed since it was home to dozens of workers when it was one of the most successful and productive pearl farms in the world. The sheds full of machinery and generators are still there, along with the staff quarters, called verandahs, although a resident croc, nicknamed Charlie, has moved in since farming traffic has eased and can often be seen sunning himself on the jetty (there are no moonlit walks along the jetty in this place!)
Kuri Bay is a remote coastal bay in the far north of Western Australia in the Kimberley region, about 370 km (230 mi) north of Broome. The closest main town is Derby that is located 223 km (139 mi) southwest from the bay. The bay opens directly into the Indian Ocean and the Augustus Island is located just off-shore from the bay. The bay is part of the Prince Regent Nature Reserve and the Kunmunya Aboriginal Reserve.
