Waiting for the Queen to leave at Lady Macquarie’s Chair

Two gigantic luxury ocean liners sailed into Sydney Harbour this week. Queen Elizabeth 2 and Queen Mary 2 were welcomed by thousands of spectators including a fleet of cruise boats, kayaks and choppers. The 294-metre Queen Elizabeth is on 103-night circumnavigation from England, with stops in the US, New Zealand, Australia, the Middle East and Europe. It docked at the International terminal and had left the next day for Melbourne.

We were able to catch Queen Mary 2 at Garden Island before it left for New Zealand later in the afternoon. We joined hundreds of excited spectators at Lady Macquarie’s Chair and had a great time taking some snapshots of this impressive ship. Queen Mary 2 is a 345-metre, 151,400-tonne luxury liner and is on a 96-night world voyage. Prices for a round-trip luxury cruise starts at $US25,529. ☺
