Life of Guwan (Yinyja Town Tour)
Yinyja means To walk in Yawuru language.

Start your tour with Bart describing the landscape and Yawuru people’s place within it, introducing you to the language and cultural heritage of the area. You will learn about saltwater people, the seasons, the land, plants and food that sustained this ancient coastal culture for thousands of years. Hear the stories of the Roebuck Bay Hotel, Sun Pictures, Johnny Chi Lane and the opium dens, brothels and gambling houses of the lively, chaotic and lawless Broome of the early 1900s.

Following on from that colourful time Bart will lead you to Cygnet Bay Pearl Farms Chinatown Exhibition. You will learn the remarkable story of cultured pearling from Australia’s Pearling Pioneers. The tour will end with a live Pearl Harvest and Pearl Meat tasting.


Duration: 1.5 hours - 2 hours | What to bring: Comfortable shoes, hat and a water bottle
