Tropic of Capricorn Marker

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

The Tropic of Capricorn Marker, a Bicentennial community project, is set back 15 metres from the road, along the Stuart Highway 30 kilometres north of Alice Springs.

In 1987 the local Alice Springs newspaper ran a competition for a design to replace the Tropic of Capricorn marker. The winning design was submitted by a local resident, it consists of a stylised globe of the world on top of a slanted pole around 6.5 metres high. A local artist was commissioned to carve the Capricorn Goats into either side of the cement base and the new marker was officially opened late 1988.

Overnight camping for 24 hours only is permitted.
