Campbells Cove, Wangi Queen

The Wangi Queen is a ferry which operates tours of Sydney Harbour from Campbells Cove at The Rocks. The Sydeny Opera House is seen here in the background as the Hop On Hop Off Ferry rushes past and the Carnival Legend is the cruise ship at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. The ferry Wangi Queen was built in 1922 as the Ettalong and operated on Brisbane Water on the Central Coast of New South Wales. In 1938 it was registered as the Ettalong Star and changed to the the Profound in 1951. From the 1940s to the 1970s, it was used on Sydney Harbour. When the ferry began operating on Lake Macquarie in 1975 its name was changed again to the now iconic Wangi Queen. It returned to Sydney Harbour in 2012.
