The tour was excellent. Bart was knowledgeable, willing to answer questions and friendly. A great insight into indigenous culture and history as well as the broader history of Broome. Be prepared to get a bit muddy and hot but well worth the effort.

Bart was very informative and obviously passionate about what he does. This tour gives you an overview of Broome from bush tucker to dinosaurs and the local history. The stories were beautifully told and the background to the history of Broome well researched by Bart
