This was no traditional disembarkment for her passengers though, with an indigenous welcome greeting them upon their first steps onto Fremantle.
Fremantle Chamber of Commerce chief executive Tim Milsom, a member of the committee who came up with the idea, said it was a way of enhancing the local experience for cruise passengers.
‘The passengers on board really liked the welcome and it brought home to them that they were visiting a different country with a unique culture,’ he said.
‘The chamber is also planning to host a number of indigenous experiences such as bush tucker dining at the Esplanade and boomerang throwing.’
The Queen Mary II will return to Fremantle on March 6.
