Fourth-generation pearler and Bardi man, Terry Hunter, owner of Borrgoron Coast to Creek Tours has been operating his tourism business for three years. Terry runs his tours out of the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm, 200 km north of Broome, on the tip of the Dampier Peninsula in Western Australia. This remote location gives visitors a unique Kimberley Coast experience through the eyes of a traditional custodian.
The history of Indigenous people on the Dampier Peninsula is thought to date back as far as 5,000 years and the communities on the north tip of the peninsula include those of the Bardi (land) and Jawi (island) coastal Indigenous groups. These local people retain a particularly special relationship with their land and sea that encompasses in-depth knowledge of bush food, medicine and traditional hunting and fishing practices.
