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)

Such an insight into the Aboriginal culture, Broome and the region. This tour ticked all the boxes. The guide, Bart Pigram is very knowledgeable & easy going. He talks with a passion about his forebears, his connection to the land and his love of the region. He shared many interesting facts & showed us relics, foods, tools & sights. Set on a catamaran & sailing leisurely around Roebuck bay, you feel like you're privileged and thankful to be a part of it all. The crew were lovely & shared their knowledge too. We were lucky that at the end of the tour the tide was out so we could visit the dinosaur footprints at Gantheame point. Wow. What an idyllic way to spend a few hours of your day. Worth every cent!!
