In the local Yawuru language ‘Narlijia’, means ‘True for you’.

Bart Pigram is a Yawuru man from the West Kimberley region of northwest Australia. Born and bred in Broome Bart has a passion for telling the complete story of life in Broome. Drawing on knowledge gained from living a saltwater lifestyle as well as professional training as a curator Bart started Narlijia Tours in 2015. Narlijia means ‘true for you’ in the Yawuru (Australian Aboriginal) language reflecting Bart’s wish to tell the ‘entire’ story sharing his Aboriginal and multicultural perspective first hand.

Being part of the large Pigram-Puertollano family Bart belongs to a long tradition of pearling workers and musicians. This heritage enables Bart many rich and fascinating stories of life around the beautiful turquoise waters of Roebuck Bay, Broome.

A natural entertainer you can join Bart on one of his unique tours of Broome and the Bay and see the country and lifestyle from his unique perspective including Dampier Creek and the rich pickings in the mangrove forests and on the jabalbal (mudflats)


Phenomenal cultural tour. We were blown away by this tour of the mangroves, dune landscape and marine environment. We trundled off in special rubber diving boots and walked across the mud flats. The tour covers dream time stories, catching mud crabs, bush foods, and a range of Aboriginal cultural practices. Everyone visiting Broome should do this tour if they can. Bart is the real deal. This is a thoughtful, intelligent and respectfully delivered tour that provides real insight. Bart is one of only two guides based out of Broome talking about his culture. We need to support locals who are passionate about educating us and establishing sustainable businesses for their people! A fabulous tour for the kids with all that mud but not so good if you are wearing your fancy white trousers. Prepare for a little mud splatter! This tour is better suited to someone steady on their feet.
