Queen Mary 2 Makes Maiden Visit to Kangaroo Island

February 23, 2017 Photo Gallery No Comments Email Email

As Sydney prepares for the 10th anniversary visit of Queen Mary 2 on Saturday, the iconic liner has already been turning heads around Australia.

The newly remastered Cunard flagship anchored off Kangaroo Island at Penneshaw on Monday, with the 345-metre long liner becoming the largest ship ever to visit the South Australian island.

During the inaugural call, the ship’s 2700 guests enjoyed a day of sightseeing including tours to Seal Bay Conservation Park, Vivonne Bay, Cape Willoughby, Flinders Chase National Park and the ‘Remarkable Rocks’,  as well as the opportunity to taste local produce.

The Kangaroo Island call was part of Queen Mary 2’s first short roundtrip cruise from Melbourne and is one of four maiden Australian visits for the liner this year, with visits to Busselton in Western Australia, and Port Arthur and Hobart in Tasmania also on her itinerary.


Queen Mary 2 is set to mark ten years since her memorable first visit to Australia in 2007 with a spectacular rendezvous with sister ship Queen Elizabeth in Sydney Harbour on Saturday.
