Winfrey, on the left, enjoys the famous harbor’s glittering waters on board the bareboat sailboat charter yacht “Eagle Rock.” She joins Russell Crowe, a Sydney local, tailed by a flotilla of some 20 other yachts.
On the right, Oprah wears a white cap given to her by Crowe and emblazoned with the logo of his South Sydney Rabbitohs rugby league team. She beams as she sits at the stern of the bareboat yacht, talking sport with the “Gladiator” star.
“I’m having the time of my life,” Winfrey said.
The harbor features heavily on the megastar’s weekend itinerary. For instance, the glittering waterfront reception Saturday night, complete with fireworks, then later, Sunday morning, feature of a climb of the Sydney Harbor Bridge and a visit to Bondi Beach.
Finally, Oprah’s whirlwind tour of Australia will be broadcast as a four episode “Ultimate Australian Adventure” in January 2011.
