The Flyingfox

Best on Black


I could not resist this one from about 6k out of town at a place called "The Flyingfox"

We drove out there after the ANZAC day service.

The Cable is beside the white ball marked cable

The Flyingfox, a large cage, was used to transport men and materials across the valley to a small Gold mine


Marble Bar is in the Pilbara region of Australia’s north west, and is Australia’s hottest town – 161 consecutive days above 100℉ (as recorded by the Guinness Book of Records). The famous ‘marble’ that runs across the Coongan River (giving Marble Bar its name) is a large band of Jasper. The Jasper and the Banded Iron Formations bring extraordinary colours into this landscape, a strong favourite of mine.
