YOUR EXPERIENCE PROVIDER
Join Terry Hunter, a fourth generation pearler and proud Bardi man from the Dampier Peninsula, located 220km north of Broome in Western Australia, on an Aboriginal culture and history tour. The Bardi (land) and Jawi (island) people of the Dampier Peninsula retain a particularly special relationship with their land and sea, encompassing an in-depth knowledge of bush food, medicine and traditional hunting and fishing practices.
During this one hour personalised experience with Terry Hunter you can take in the beautiful views of Cygnet Bay as you wonder up to a lookout point to share a real life Question and Answer session with Terry. This is your opportunity to ask all things you are curious about.
Terry will dive deep into the stories that shaped the pearling industry and how he and his family fit into this industry and the area. He will share the Hunter Family history and how maritime history played a part in how ancient culture was impacted back then. Terry will talk to the ancient practices, Bardi rafts and the story behind the returning boomerang.

Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm is 220km north of Broome, on the tip of the Dampier Peninsula. Accessible by the Cape Leveque.
We strongly recommend a four-wheel drive, as the road into the Pearl Farm is regularly graded but can still be a little rough at times depending on the weather and use. The drive from Broome to Cygnet Bay takes approximately 2.5 hours.
Due to the remote location, there is limited Telstra service and little WIFI available in locations.
