YMBL Marble Bar Airstrip, managed by the Shire of East Pilbara is situated 218 kilometres southeast of Port Hedland.  Marble Bar is best known for being the hottest town in Australia, although perfect weather is enjoyed from April to September. The town was called Marble Bar after a stunning formation of jasper which settlers mistook for a huge bar of marble.  Marble Bar had a population of over 5,000 after gold was found nearby in 1891, but today the town has about 410 inhabitants. However, it continues to be a very productive centre, with gold, tin, silver, lead, zinc, copper and jade deposits being mined.  The townsite included in model 5 nm west, is serviced by a gravel airstrip. This facility provides a vital air link to the town. RFDS, Police, and local charter operators all rely on this airstrip for the provision of vital services to the communities.
