As the only truly authentic Australian luxury brand, Paspaley Australian South Sea pearls are internationally recognised as the finest and most valuable pearls in the world. Behind the simplicity and singular beauty of Paspaley Australian South Sea pearls is a journey that began more than 75 years ago on the remote and unspoiled coastline of northern Australia. Paspaley's involvement in pearling dates back to 1935 when Nicholas Paspaley Senior MBE, first collected mother-of-pearl shell in Australia's Northern waters. He established a family passion that has evolved to become the world's leading South Sea pearling company. Paspaley nurtures its pearls on a remote network of over 20 farms, stretching more than 2500 kilometres across the pristine waters off the North West coast of Australia. This is about the same distance as London to Moscow. Only the finest Australian South Sea pearls are used in Paspaley's exclusive jewellery collections and are the inspiration for the breathtaking designs that are the hallmark of Paspaley boutiques. Their beauty is illuminated by precious stones such as diamonds, rubies and emeralds set in either white or yellow gold and platinum. Paspaley's artisan jewellers combine traditional time-honoured techniques, hand craftsmanship and innovative technology, adorning pearls with the finest materials to create coveted jewellery to cherish for generations. Whilst the hallmark of Paspaley is the classic strand, Paspaley has led the world in contemporary pearl jewellery design, in many ways redefining how pearls are worn. Paspaley boutiques showcase an unrivalled range of pearl jewellery from simple pearl pendants, earrings, bracelets, cufflinks and rings to elaborate one-of-a-kind pearl and diamond colliers fit for royalty.

Jawbone Marine Sanctuary

Jawbone Marine Sanctuary, named after its shape, is located in Williamstown and protects 30ha of coastal waters. The little promontory, west of the beach at Williamstown, has been fenced off from the rest of the world for over 80 years by a coastal rifle range. This forgotten and unspoilt place is now considered a haven for coastal and marine life right next to Melbourne. Patches of all marine habitats from northern Port Phillip Bay are packed into this small area. On the west of the promontory, there is saltmarsh and the largest occurrence of mangroves within Port Phillip Bay. They also happen to be the only mangroves in Victoria which grow on a basalt coast. Offshore there are areas of fine clayey sand and patches of seagrass. The eastern side has a complete set of rocky environments. There are areas high up on the shore that only occasionally get wet from storm waves and submerged boulders and ledges that lie below the lowest tides. The soft basalt rock has weathered into smaller rocks and pools that support a full range of tidal life. In between the clay and rock lie some small sandy beaches.

Kingston Heath is one of the Golf Clubs of the world famous Melbourne Sandbelt and has hosted numerous national championships including nine Australian Opens. The Club is the host of the 2009 Australian Masters. The course is currently ranked number 20 in the world and number 11 outside of the United States and is regarded by many, including some of the world's best golfers, as one of Australia's finest golf courses. Kingston Heath is one of the smallest courses of world renown. The difficulty of the course is centred around its bunkering, which is visually stunning. It is full of all the strategic interest golfers expect of a fine course. A hugely long course at over 6800 yards when it opened, it is now on the short side of what is regarded as 'championship' length but its genius is that it can still defend itself against the finest players. More importantly, it is a course to constantly stimulate and challenge those who play it with regularity.
