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.
Join Bart, a natural entertainer, 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).
Bart offers a range of cultural tours and experiences, including the popular Mangrove Discovery Experience. All of Bart's tours are able to be booked in person at the Broome Visitor Centre, online at visitbroome.com.au or directly on his website.
Matso's is an iconic, award winning Broome venue. Located in an idyllic location, with beautiful large verandah and expansive courtyard, it is close to Roebuck Bay, the location that will feature heavily in Bart's cultural and historical presentation. With a wide variety of beverages, including the famous range of craft beers such as Mango and Ginger beer, there is also a wonderful food menu to choose from.
The Matso's menu features the beers throughout, whether as a food match or infused in the dish, with the chefs working hard on that perfect balance of flavours. The chefs have also created a tasty share plate menu (the fritters are delicious), full of local produce that visitors and locals all enjoy.
