The Shadow Path

The Shadow path across Australia

The shadow path of this eclipse starts at sunrise in the Northern Territory east of Darwin. It then travels across the Gulf of Carpentaria and over Cape York. . The track across Cape York is about 140km wide and extends from the area around and to the north of Kowanyama on the west coast through to between Bloomfield and Innisfail on the east coast.

The shadow then passes over the South Pacific Ocean traveling to the north of New Zealand and makes no further landfall. The centre of the track crosses the east coast of Cape York near Oak Beach just south of Port Douglas and north of Cairns.
