Mar 11th – Sydney, Australia

We arrived in Sydney harbour early Saturday morning and got up at 5:45am to go to an observation area for the arrival. Seems a lot of other people had the same idea, the captain had made an announcement about being on deck to see the ship arrive. By the time we got to to observation area the rail was full but we managed to squeeze ourselves in to take a few pictures, they are in an earlier post. It’s a gorgeous harbour with the iconic Sydney Opera House .

Here are a few pictures of our arrival in Sydney harbour this past Saturday morning. They were taken between 6 & 6:30am from an observation area on deck 11.

Once the ship anchored we went ashore on a large tender that dropped us off near the Opera House. There is large park/botanical garden in that harbour (Sydney is full of harbours) with lots of great walkways. It was a hot sunny day and we were sweaty and beat by the time we chose a place to have lunch in the historic ‘The Rocks’ area in a very old pub, lunch was good !.

Our final night on QM2, cocktails and a final stroll on deck after dinner. You can sort of see the lovely Sydney Opera House over Bob’s left shoulder.
