The Bardi people are the Indigenous Australians from the area north of Broome and parts of the Dampier Peninsular in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.[2]

Djarindjin, Lombadina and One Arm Point[3] are three Bardi communities in the area.[4][5][6][7]

Bardi used to live on Sunday Island. There was a UAM[clarification needed] mission there in 1940s.[8][9]

Playwright and musician Jimmy Chi has Bardi ancestry, as do many Aboriginal people who live in and around Broome today.[10]

The Kooljaman resort at Cape Leveque is run by Bardi people.
