Lots of folks know about WA's Marble Bar and its boast to be the hottest place in Australia.
Try the NT's Rabbit Flat on for size.
Rabbit Flat has just taken the national record as the hottest place in Oz.
It has now recorded 107 consecutive days above 39 degrees.
Marble Bar scored its place in history between 1923 and 1924.
According to the Bureau of Meteorology, Rabbit Flat has just taken the crown during a dismal but hot wet season, although Rabbit Flat is well outside the tropics.
It was actually named after a well, on the stock route from Alice Springs to Halls Creek in WA.
The well, sometimes a lagoon, is 160km from the WA border.
Given that it is located in the heart of the still perilous Tanami Desert, the third biggest desert in Australia, a well was a pretty important landmark even with a respectable annual rainfall for those parts of 430mm.
Of course being so hot, most the rain evaporates but the Tanami track, which is mostly unsealed, can still get boggy.
A roadhouse straddled the road at Rabbit Flat for a time before a change of operations and even a weather station kept track of the passing days but today, it is best known for, well saltbush and heat.
Rabbit Flat could add to its record over the next few days although Tropical Cyclone Trevor may come along and spoil the party on the weekend or early next week.
