Information

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.
