"We were there in August 2009 and took these pics. Shows me and my wife Jeannette and
some of our party in Iron Clad Hotel and some shots of the actual Marble Bar.

Marble Bar was an unexpected highlight of our trip around the North West of Australia. It is off the main coastal highway about 180kms but the scenery and drive into Marble Bar is very pretty and always interesting with the many mining road train triples,  travelling up and down this road every day.

The camp ground is fairly basic although we chose to stay in the upper campground area where the lighting is poor and there is virtually no power available (one light pole with power available). There are powered sites on the lower level with water available.

The shower/toilet  blocks were of reasonable standard and cleanliness and the park manager was very helpful.

We visited the Iron Clad Hotel for a cold beer  in the afternoon and spent a morning out at the very remarkable Marble Bar,  which is actually a rocky outcrop of Jasper in the Coongan River. It is a remarkable town with many historic buildings and well worth the detour off the main coastal road for a one or two night stop-over".

    We did return with family in 2014 for the third visit. Sadly the chef had left the Iron Clad Hotel for greener pastures in Newman and so the meals had reverted to pretty standard pub fare. We all enjoyed exploring the jasper bar in the Coongan River and the kids picked up some jasper samples to take home from the free mine site. The caravan park is still pretty well run down and is in need of an overhaul in all areas. One shower block now out of operation and other block needs attention and clean up.

    We returned to Marble Bar with another group of friends in 2013 after our first visit in 2009. We had an absolutely magnificent meal at the Iron Hotel ....the chef has a great reputation in the area and we can see why. This time we went sight seeing from the lookout up at the water tank on the hill (can drive up) and also went out to have a look at the very large Solar power station recently installed just out of the town. We are looking forward to returning again in 2014 with family this time.
