Queen Mary 2 anchors off Kangaroo IslandCunard Line's Queen Mary 2 anchored off Kangaroo Island at Penneshaw on Monday, with the ship becoming the largest ship ever to visit the South Australian island.

During the inaugural call, the ship’s 2,700 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, according to a statement. 

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 cruise vessel this year, with visits to Busselton in Western Australia, and Port Arthur and Hobart in Tasmania also on her itinerary.

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