Wow what a difference a bit of sun makes, still you cant have waterfalls without rain so  there we are.

Pics much the same as Gettingwarmer.

A few extra as we had rainbows and something? in the water.  Not sure where we were  I think we missed some altogether as the Captain didnt want to risk it.

I also notice that a picture to one side, grey and mist and another from the same spot seconds later

of the other side  has some colour  and fairly clear. On that basis you could see some people just

viewing from one side having a grey miserable view and those looking out the other side not too bad.

Lovely waterfalls and rainbows. What IS that on photo 4?  Both Frank and I have been stuying it and can't for life of us figure out what it is. It seems to come out of the clouds and disappears out of the bottom of the picture. Our best guess is bungy jumping. Anyone else?

Can I ask if the Dunedin train station is still a working station or is it now a look into the past for tourists, like stately homes? I'm guessing it's not used now, as it is so beautiful and pristine.

Reading this:

https://www.seat61.com/NewZealand.htm

it appears to be a visitor attraction other than the trains to the gorge.

It is still has freight services.

It has two lines, one to the gorge and one along the coast but it does not connect further.

I have no idea - also appears in pic 6 right side.  This from the back of the Golden Princess 2018 (Now P&O AU)

Could be a line from the window washing equipment -I think that is stowed high up at the stern.

It could be. It looks really strange though, because it seems to appear from out of the clouds.

Happy Easter everyone. We have visited Sydney 3 times and have spent a few days pre or post cruise each time. We enjoyed the city and the sail-out in 2011 was fabulous....

We rode 'the steepest train descent' in the world which was originally a railway line used by miners to get down to the valley. It was very scary ..

Loving your photos, we have visited Australia 3 times but never on a cruise.

We did a major land tour in 1999 of all the highlights with several internal fights, we returned to Queensland in 2001 and 2003, also spending time in Sydney and Adelaide.

Unfortunately all  my photos are on film, could not face the long flights now.

We had two full days in Sydney on our Aurora cruise in 2017. Om the first day, we had to tender in, as Queen Mary was at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. We did an excursion to Bondi Beach, a drive round Sydney and a tour of the Opera House. After the tour was over, we had lunch on the trerraces surrounding the Opera House, overlooking the Queen Mary, then we looked round the Botanical Gardens. After that it was time to join our evening tour to Taronga Zoo. It so happened that it was our guide and driver from the morning tour, so we felt like we had been on a very long day trip.  After that, time to tender back to the ship at dusk.

Overnight, Aurora moved to the OPT. We spent some time in the Circular Quay area, then it was our intention to walk to Darling Harbour. But the weather wasn't as good as the previous day, and it became very overcast, so we decided to turn back and return to the ship. Just as well, as it was a wet afternoon.

Today we arrive in Brisbane, tomorrow.......well tomorrow I fly home. I have visited Cairns on a precruise trip and snorkled for the first time on my fiftieth birthday on the Great Barrier Reef. However I have never been to Asia, southern Africa or southern South America.

If anyone would like to continue the voyage please do so.

I thank all the contributors and have loved seeing all the photos. I wish everyone happy cruising in the near future.

I do hope someone carries on with the cruise. Although I don't post, I look forward to seeing the photos of the different places that I've not visited, it brightens up the day, gives me some ideas for possible future cruises, and also a chance to dream.

Thank you for all the wonderful photos and especially Australia as it was next on our cruising calendar before covid19.

Paulines cousin emigrated to Adelaide Australia 16 years ago and they WhatsApp or speak to each other daily and we would have stayed a couple of nights with them at their home in Adelaide.

They were here 18 months ago for their 40th wedding anniversary and 60th birthday and we took them around the Lake District and stayed in the Laura Ashley Hotel with rooms overlooking Lake Windermere for their double celebration.

Good morning posters and thank you Gettingwarmer for starting the thread which I have thoroughly enjoyed, not only because it made me look through my own pictures but also seeing those from the other posters. I don't mind continuing the 'Round the World. if no one else wants to take it on. My suggestion for tomorrow is the Cairns, Yorkey's Knob, Port Douglas area which are all cruise ship calls and quite close together....what do you think?

We visited Brisbane in 2011, not long after the dreadful floods that did tremendous damage to the area. We were very impressed with the speed of the recovery in the city. We caught the river cat from the dock to the city centre and then got the bus to the Lone Pine wild Life Refuge so again, we didn't see much of the city itself...

At the Lone Pine Sanctuary in Brisbane I saw one of the funniest things ever. 

A Japanese Gentleman was following a Kangaroo with his camera, he was jumping along in time with the Kangaroo.

Adelaide is a lovely city Graham you need to spend time there, we have friends  who live in the Barrossa Valley Wine Country not far away.

I would respectfully suggest that a cruise can never do Australia justice unless combined with land tours.
