Marble Bar is HOT promotion day

Marble Bar 1898 - Wikipedia Commons Perhaps inspired by my recent CAKE09 tale from Marble Bar, perhaps the reason is something else entirely (really who needs a reason to promote the hottest town in Australia!) – Western Australian photographers David Bettini and Merv French have declared this Wednesday Marble Bar promotion day and asked me to join in the fun! Fellow CAKE09 members and Australia photographers Casey Smith and Rod Thomas are also part of our Marble Bar is Hot day! So step inside, kick back and enjoy Marble Bar in Western Australia. I even dug up a few old slides (yes I have been to Marble Bar twice!) for this special day.

First; the whole town in a big old wide panorama shot from the town water tower:

And another water tower image, this time overlooking the hills surrounding the mines:

What it’s all about – the marble! Actually it is not Marble. They thought it was. So they named the town Marble Bar after the Marble that was actually jasper. Oh well, just another entry on the very long list of Things with Wrong Names in Australia. Here’s the jasper in Jasper Bar from an old slide:


Get up early out of your swag and you may catch a sunrise even in the caravan park!

Marble Bar is surrounded by many beautiful dirt roads and outback landscapes:

And many other tourists enjoying the heat and dirt in this old slide:

But venture a bit out of town on the dirt roads and this is where the real magic begins! Red dirt road to infinity on the Boreline Dirt Road:

And with a bit of luck your stay at Marble Bar could include you catching the red Pilbara rocks under a huge outback dramatic cloudscape!
