Wade through shallow mangrove waters and across the mudflats of Roebuck Bay (Yawuru Nadulagun), discovering the rich history and habitats along with an expert local guide with Narlijia Experiences, the biz started by Bart Pigram — a Yawuru man — in 2015.

On this particular 2.8-kilometre walk, Pigram tells visitors stories and multicultural histories of Broome and the surrounds. He shares knowledge of the rich ecosystems of the mangroves: fish, turtles, mud crabs and crocs, and a multitude of insect and mollusc life burrowing and flitting through the trees.

Learn about Dreaming stories and significant shell middens, hunting and foraging traditions, then maybe sample bushtucker from the mangroves themselves.
