I think it´s a shame that the Queen usually wears small jewels when going to a state visit in a republic, she does it quite often I think. The dress lookes quite good actually from what I thought first, but it must be very awkward with that big bow in the back when you should sit down at a state dinner...

Australia is not a Republic, we are a Constitutional Monarchy. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is Queen of Australia.

Thanks for posting the picture.:)

The dress is beautiful but it's old. She wear it by Nobel 1994 and in Oslo July 1997.

I think a state visit to australia probably took a lot of efforts for the many gala dinner held in each city. the same happened when frederik & mary visit australia, mary took lots of gowns because they have gala dinner every night. so, it's no wonder queen sylvia try to use her gala gowns again
too bad there aren't many pictures from those gala dinner.:(

Here are some from today :

Polfoto 09-11-2005 King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden and Queen Silvia of Sweden stand with members of Australia's Swedish community on the steps of the Sydney Opera House Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2005. Queen Silvia and King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden are on a six day visit to Australia.

Gosh, how could Silvia have worn that suit on such a hot day like today? It's nearly 10pm and I'm still really hot. The colour and the cut is really nice on her though. Thanks everyone for the great photos. I really hope they're enjoying their time here.

Yes, i imagine it must be a hot day in sydney this time of year.
when Victoria visit sydney, she wore sleveless short dress, and when Mary visited, she also wore blouse and skirt. perhaps queen silvia doesn't feel appropriate to do that.. but i'm glad she wore bright colours in this trip.. :)

some more from ANP :

Eh she must have been sweltering its now 11:41 according to my computer clock and I'm still with my fan on one of the highest settings hot as ... well. Although it could just be my room. Was anyone actually there? I was in a stupid exam Thanks for all the pictures though thanks too you guys I actually get to see whats been going on without standing in a crowd on a hot day . Is it just because I haven't been paying attention or hasn't there been a lot of media coverage from this trip?

Indeed Her Majesty looks wonderful in that bright blue/turquoise suit! It's a lovely colour on her!

The sign that the girls are holding up, and which the Queen also checks out in some pictures, says "King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia are welcomed so Sydney by the children". I think most of the people around them at the Opera House are part of the Swedish community in Sydney. Loved that sign! :)

Ooops. sorry :o Ofcourse it´s a Monarchy I don´t know what I was thinking of. But if there isn´t any royal person present from the host country she tends to scale the jewels down a bit, that was what I meant.
