Curnard’s Queen Elizabeth will be the backdrop of a tribute to Australia’s Anzac heroes as she arrives in Sydney tomorrow.
She will be in Sydney for a two-day stay before sailing to Gallipoli as part of her world voyage.
The line is inviting Sydneysiders in paying their respects by leaving a red poppy in a two-metre high Poppy Wall in remembrance of the Anzacs.
The wall will be in front of Queen Elizabeth at Circular Quay from Tuesday March 3.
The poppies will be formed in the shape of “100” to mark the upcoming centenary of the Gallipoli campaign.
There will be 11,500 poppies on the wall that represents the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who lost their lives.
Visitors will give a gold coin for each poppy and can leave a personalised message in a special book.
The poppy wall will be available at Circular Quay from 8am to 6pm on Tuesday and from 7:30am to 6pm on Wednesday.
