The Tropic of Capricorn Spire

176 Gladstone Road, Allenstown 4700

Ph: 0749368000



The Tropic of Capricorn is a line that represents the southernmost position of the sun on its annual journey where the sun can be directly overhead. Rockhampton lies just north of the Tropic of Capricorn. Visit their SPIRE, a marker that acts as a sundial, one of the only locations in the world that allows you to observe how the earth moves around the sun and ‘see’ the extent of difference in length of shadows at mid-winter and mid-summer.
