With no tour on the day’s schedule, we were lounging about a bit when we heard all this banging and clanging outside the balcony. The crew was having a life boat drill and had lowered several life boats. We watched them for quite a while. Then we got off the ship and walked to another fantastic restaurant, the Governor’s Pub complete with music and customers dancing. It has turned out to be quite warm in Sydney.
This Sydney Merchant Mariners Memorial tells the heroic story of the sailors on merchant ships carrying equipment and supplies to the Allied forces in Europe during WWII.
The World’s Largest Fiddle located on the Sydney waterfront greets visitors as they arrive via cruise ship. The fiddle and bow reach a height of 60 feet! The Big Fiddle, as many call it, was designed and constructed by Cyril Hearn in 2005. It is a tribute to the folk music and traditions of the province’s Celtic community.
