1.23pm We did get an early start. Mine started at 3am when I awoke and wasn't able to get back to sleep, but more to the point we were able to pack up and get onto the road a few minutes before 6.30am. What delight.

At 23*26'30" we cross the Tropic of Capricorn almost halfway between Coral Bay and the ...
... of a row of ensuites, with SELF CLOSING lids on the newest block. The town of Carnarvon itself is not pretty, perhaps because of the way the shopping centre has been built to withstand cyclones. Quite a few empty shops and broken windows.
