    Spanning three generationsâ¿¿ Capricornia tells the story of Australia's North. It is a story of whites and Aborigines and Asiansâ¿¿ of chance relationships that can form bonds for lifeâ¿¿ of dispossessionâ¿¿ murder and betrayal. In 1904 the brothers Oscar and Mark Shillingsworthâ¿¿ clad in serge suits and bowler hatsâ¿¿ arrive in Port Zodiac on the coast of Capricornia. They are clerks who have come from the South to join the Capricornian Government Service.
