Nice touch with the Temperate & Tropic Zone indications but apart from that I think I prefer Longreach's Marker ? Either way you are officially in the North !The VIC was closed for the day , so no reflection on those fine people !

Well worth a stop as you enter Rockhampton, take a photo and get some traveller information for your trip north. You can even straddle the tropic of Capricorn.

We expected Rockhampton to make more of the tropic. The spire is nice but its position is difficult to photograph and there is not much else there.
