"Very hot and dusty"

Marble bar has the reputation of being known as the hottest place in Australia and is situated 218 kms south east of Port Headland. This town’s name comes from the early settlers who mistook the jasper in the area for a large bar of marble. Marble Bar has a small population of around 500 and is basically a mining town with gold, tin, ore jade, zinc etc still being mined here. There are many old building dating back to the early settlement and gold rush days. The town has a supermarket, a few assorted specialty shops and convenience stores for you needs and has licensed restaurants, café and of course a hotel for a cold beer as well as a seafood treat at the Travellers Stop. Play a round of golf or take a dip in the local swimming pool to cool off. There are some good playing fields in Marble bar for a variety of sports. Chinaman’s pool is a great spot for a picnic. The town also has a post office, visitor information centre, motel and backpacker accommodation. Real estate prices here are moderate but rental accommodation is scarce. This hot arid town is generally comfortable from April through winter to the middle of September

ally18 I'm sorry to report that your facts are either outdated or incorrect. I live in the Pilbara and I know for a fact that Marble Bar does not have all of those amenities you have listed. There is no backpacker accommodation nor any cafe's. However, it is still a charming place to visit and a beer in the Iron Clad Hotel is highly recommended. I quite often visit Marble Bar and it's great for a family picnic afternoon in the cooler months.
