Circular Quay, ship

A view of a cruise ship berthed at the Overseas Passenger Terminal  looking towards the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is currently peak cruise season and there have been cruise ships coming and going at Circular Quay all week, such as the P&O Arcadia on Friday. The much smaller Lithgow, is the restored deck timber passenger ferry just arriving at the front. This view is from the viewing platform beside the Cahill Expressway, above Circular Quay railway station.

  3. I love the little passenger ferry! Perhaps not so little, but in contrast to the liner...

  5. Cruise ships are SO large when in port....love this shot. Hope that cruise went smoothly instead of the last two with Carnival. The comparison of the size of the shit to the size of the dock is awesome. A really cool shot. genie

  15. Julie, I didn't get a chance to get down to Circular Quay on Thursday because of all the chaos caused by the rains. I was hoping it was still there on Friday but it had been replaced by this one.

  23. I saw the QM2 from the plane when I flew into Sydney on Thursday afternoon, awesome!
    Thought I might go down there but was too tired.

  24. Wonderful shot Jim, really gives you an idea of the size of these cruise ships, and as added eye candy, there's my most loved bridge behind.

  25. This bridge is a jetty for the cruise boat?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ann, the bridge is actually quite a distance away from where the ship is berthed.
