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)

A wealth of knowledge and insights. Truly fantastic. My husband and I went on the 3 hour Roebuck Bay Cultural Cruise. The guide is Bart Pigram. As a member of the famous Pigram family, Bart is Broome royalty. His father and brothers are the famous folk/rock group The Pigram Brothers. His auntie is Chair of the local land council and Bart is a director on the board. Bart is a proud Yawuru man with an incredibly deep knowledge of local cultural history. He entertained and informed us for three fascinating hours with stories ranging from the songlines and cultural practices of his people through to brothels and funerals-gone-wrong in old Broome town. His style is genuine, entertaining and engaging and he encouraged us to ask questions. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. My husband loved it so much he went and did Bart's mangrove tour the next morning. Next time we visit Broome we plan to do his town walk tour.
