Another series of photos of same vessel.

website: : http://www.boskalis.com/files/Queen kleinst.pdf
this will give you all particulars of this ship.

The second photo is a shot from the bow and where you can clearly see the skyline of Melbourne.
The large building in the centre is Eureka Towers which is nearing completion at the 93rd level and which is claimed to be the tallest residential building in the world.
