Queen Mary 2 Leaves Fremantle


North Mole was grid locked this afternoon as crowds gathered to farewell Adelaide bound Queen Mary 2 from Fremantle. While watching manoeuvres in Fremantle's port - there is only 35 to 40 metres at each end of the vessel - Judith who was also there to see this magnificent ship leave port excitedly shared with me her experiences when she and Bill set sail on the Queen Mary 2 about this time last year. You could tell that she was hankering to do it all over again. So here's hoping Judith that those Lotto numbers come up!

The Queen Mary 2 is visiting eight ports during the ship's circumnavigation of Australia and will be in Australian waters for the next 28 days.

  3. Oh well done Rae, excellent pictures of the Queen Mary, I really wanted to get down there, but I'll have to wait until she comes back on the 28th.. Gosh she's a beauty isn't she, I love the last shot of her disappearing into the sunset.

  5. Yes, it is a floating hotel. Queen Mary is simply a luxury. I would like to ride. But this is just a dream. Sincerely, Peter.
