Fraser Coast residents may see P&O Cruises’ Pacific Eden off the coast late on Thursday afternoon as she returns to Cairns after a visit to Fraser Island.
A Kingfisher Bay Resort spokeswoman said more than 1000 passengers aboard the 219m ship were expected to disembark about 8am and spend the day enjoying a range of activities from helicopter flights and fishing trips to sightseeing across the island with Fraser Explorer Tours, jet skis, boat cruises, canoes and Ranger-guided walks from the resort.
She said it was the first southbound cruise ship to visit Fraser Island which was the only stop on the voyage from October 3-7.
The ship is scheduled to depart about 5pm and might be visible from Hervey Bay about 5.30pm.
