The visibility of zodiac light (an extension of the Sun's corona) is usually associated with the latitudes close to equator. However from such a unique dark site like Arkaroola www.arkaroola.com.au in Southern Australia can be seen during WInter even from 30degrees south. It is interesting to note that not farer than 16 hours drive by car you may see Auroras at the same time (from Morngton Peninsula close to Melbourne)
