If you wish to experience a unique Summer Solstice event, look no further, the Summer Solstice Light Spectacle on the beautiful Capricorn Coast will deliver. The Capricorn Caves are located in the north of Rockhampton and create a spectacular natural setting for the exceptional event.
This dazzling natural light display occurs due to a unique phenomenon occurring in the southern hemisphere throughout December and January. The alignment of the sun over the Tropic of Capricorn allows sunlight to penetrate the Caves of Capricorn, specifically the Belfry Cave via a 14 metre long shaft.
The effect is magical. The sunlight dances across the caves below, illuminating the walls through the darkness. The event is a popular time for both weddings and proposals.
