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)


Informative and enjoyable walking tour - We joined Bart's walk through the older part of Broome and we learnt so much that went beyond the bare-bones of the town's history. Bart does include historical and other details but adds anecdotes from his own family and others which personalise it all and make it so much more engaging and entertaining. The walking pace is moderate, Bart is very flexible in his approach and welcomed all our questions. Overall it was a fantastic opportunity to meet and learn from a local. We were so glad that we did this tour based on the recommendation of some friends.
