The mega-yacht L’Aus­tral will dock at Ger­ald­ton Port to­day. The 142m long, 10,700-tonne cruise ship can ac­com­mo­date 264 pas­sen­gers and 139 crew.

Tak­ing the trop­i­cal tour of Aus­tralia, the cruise be­gan in Syd­ney, stopped in Fre­man­tle, and was ex­pected to have a nine-hour stay in Ger­ald­ton to­day.

Af­ter L’Aus­tral leaves Ger­ald­ton, the ship will head north to Exmouth, the Kim­ber­ley and Queens­land be­fore sail­ing back to the coun­try’s south­east.

Mayor Shane Van Styn said cruise pas­sen­gers

would have a range of things to do in Ger­ald­ton be­fore the ship left for Exmouth at 6pm.

“There is so much to do and see here in Ger­ald­ton and pas­sen­gers off the cruise ships are al­ways rav­ing about the sites,” he said.

“Our won­der­ful meet-and-greet vol­un­teers are al­ways on hand to as­sist vis­i­tors.”

A Ger­ald­ton Vis­i­tor Cen­tre spokes­woman said the best place to view the L’Aus­tral’s de­par­ture at 6pm, was from the Es­planade.
