About Marble Bar in Western Australia

Marble Bar is a town and rock formation in the Pilbara region of north-western Western Australia. It is well known for its extremely hot weather.

Founded in 1893, Marble Bar has earned a reputation as Australia's hottest town, owing to the consistently high temperatures experienced during the summer months when the mercury climbs over 38 degrees for days on end. The record is 160 consecutive days over 38.7 degrees, recorded in the sweltering summer of 1923-24. In pleasant contrast, the winter months offer visitors mild daytime temperatures and cool nights. Although most visitors come to Marble Bar in cooler months, there are many who seek the experience of actually being in Australia's hottest spot during the hottest time of the year.
