Dig the Tropic | Southern Great Barrier Reef
feed Dig the Tropic | Southern Great Barrier Reef

It's 23.5 degrees south of the equator and the natural wonders and diverse landscapes of Australia, Chile, Brazil and South Africa all share it. The Tropic of Capricorn lays the groundwork for a trail of real dinosaur fossils, ancient rainforests, sapphire gemfields and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World - the Great Barrier Reef?

You can explore all these and more with Capricorn Way's Dig the Tropic.

Spanning approximately 1200km along the Capricorn Highway from the Capricorn Coast, inland to the Central Highlands and towards the Outback, Dig the Tropic will see you uncovering the history of Australia - from the Jurassic era to the present day.

Explore ancient limestone caverns at Capricorn Caves, visit Mt Morgan; home to over 300 early Jurassic dinosaur footprints, discover Thundereggs at Mt Hay and fossick for gems on the Sapphire Gemfields. Go on a real Australian road trip and discover a real adventure as you follow the Capricorn Way, the link to Outback Queensland.

The drive is easily accessible whether you are in a car, 4x4, camp trailer and even a caravan. Take your time and experience all there is to offer from the Reef to the Outback.
