The Ngurin Bush Tucker Trail is located in Roebourne, in the North West of Western Australia, situated 30 km east of Karratha.

The Ngurin (Harding River) and all of the vegetation surrounding it holds great significance to the Ngarluma people, the traditional owners of this land.

With valuable information and learnings from Ngarluma Elders, David Walker, Pansy Hicks and Violet Samson, the Ngurin Bush Tucker Trail features interpretive signage depicting bush tucker, bush medicines and other artefacts used by Aboriginal people in their traditional way of life, with some still being used today.

This Grade 2 trail is a 2 km circuit commencing at Roe Street in the Roebourne townsite
