Extract from Sydney Ports Media Release :
"The luxury cruise liner Queen Mary 2 will berth at Sydney's Overseas Passenger Terminal for the first time ever on 7 March 2012.
Sydney Ports Executive General Manager, Industry Relations and Logistics, Lachlan Benson, said it will be the biggest ship ever to tie up at the terminal.
"Sydney Ports has made a considerable effort to be able to accommodate the ship, including placement of a special heavy-duty anchor in Campbell's Cove this week, to ensure the 345-metre Queen Mary 2 is moored safely.
"Placement of this anchor was originally planned for later this year to cater for larger ships arriving in the 2012/13 season, but was brought forward at the request of cruise company, Carnival Australia.
"This is great news for Sydney Ports because it allows for increased use of the Overseas Passenger Terminal by bigger ships," Mr Benson said"

Thanks Mr Dot. It's marvelous that no matter what man does, the natural beauty of the Harbour remains as the principal memory. |
Thanks Cody. I'm pleased the hull and superstructure colours helped make her stand out from the background. |
maybe it's a good thing that their is no climbing wall on this one, I have just been vueing a pic. of Sydney harbour years ago from my youth, and the brand new Oriana arriving under the coathanger approaching tne then new circular pier, and with the old Orient line livery! mrdot. |
Fantastic shot, Clyde. Wonderfuly light and the composition is spot on! Well done and congratulations for getting into the most viewed. |
Thank you Ted. She certainly is easier to see at Circular Quay than at borrowed space at Navy Fleet Base. The terminal building is to be rebuilt to facilitate handling passengers from her and other very large vessels heading this way. |
Good one Clyde,, looks "even" better then the PIC !!
Good one Clyde, I reckon if I stood atop the mast I could look across the city side of the bridge and see our old family home, she seemed high enough. |
Thank you Gordy. She really is a dominant sight. I almost felt I could reach across the water and touch her. |
top stuff clyde, good one mate
Thank you. Re "i love the look of Sydney harbour" Me too! It is my hobby. |
Very nice shot i have to say i love the look of Sydney harbour.. I have been there many times.. and you never know what ships/vessel you may see there.... Cheers |
Thank you Scott. Don't forget to bring your visa for crossing the Bridge. (How is that for real North Shore pompousness?) |
nice shot Clyde! I must get over to that side of the bridge for photos occasionally! |
Not in the same class as the Epic... |
I recognise your sense of humour. And I like irreverence. |
I think it needs a waterslide on the funnel. Or 2 of them. |
Thank you Mr Dot. I agree.

now this is an impressive looking vessel with great historical livery, and in a rite proper maritime setting! not the shipshape lines of some of the classic vessels, but certainly more shapely than the epic! mrdot. |
