Victoria met today H.E. Mr Bernard Philip, Australian Ambassador to Sweden, at the Australian Embassy's residence.

Ambassador Bernard Philip at his Twitter
"A tremendous honour to host HRH Crown Princess Victoria for Australian style fika ahead of her visit to Canberra and Sydney later this month"

Victoria visited The Museum of Ethnography on Djurgården last week.
The Museum at its Instagram
"Crown Princess Victoria visited The Museum of Ethnography to take part in the collection before the official trip to Australia and New Zealand in February. On site, she learned about indigenous people from both countries and took a closer look at objects from the collection. She was guided through the exhibition "Indigenous people in three climates" and learned more about the Aboriginal culture. The Crown Princess also looked at some Maori objects in the magazine and learned about their significance."

Sweden's ambassador to Australia, Pontus Melander, said to The Canberra Times that Victoria and Daniel are due to arrive in Canberra on the evening of February 12.
"They will start here in Canberra with a welcome to country including a smoking ceremony at the National Museum, which will be very impressive, Then we have a field visit to the Namadgi National Park to learn more about the effects of the bushfires and also to interact with the emergency services."
The Ambassador said there was no driving ceremonial reason for Victoria and Daniel to visit Australia, although the King is celebrating 50 years as the head of state.
"This tour was planned for before COVID, in 2020. The then Swedish government wanted to highlight the very good bilateral relationship between Sweden and Australia. Though there is distance between our two countries, we have both shown you can overcome that distance."

Will Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar accompany their parents on the trip?
 
Why would they? I assume this will be an official trip to a foreign country, so, imho there is no reason for them to bring their children - who are in school (I presume).

Yes, there isn't a vacation until the last week of February
 
Will Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar accompany their parents on the trip?

You can read from my first post at this thread, that Margareta Thorgren said already a month ago, that Estelle and Oscar are at school and Victoria and Daniel have no plan to take them with them to this business trip to Australia and New Zealand.

The Embassy of Sweden to Australia has published a program for the visit, there are small changes to the program the royal court published. Among them, a visit to HMAS Kuttabul (Orientation around regional maritime security and bilateral defence and defence materiel cooperation) has been added.

Free trade agreements in focus
The visit to Australia and New Zealand takes place together with Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel. The visit aims to broaden and develop relations both politically and in matters relating to trade.
- Australia and New Zealand are both close allies of Sweden politically. They are also important for Swedish industry, both in terms of exports and imports. We hope to sign a free trade agreement between New Zealand and the EU in the near future during the EU presidency. In addition, we are in negotiations for a free trade agreement with Australia on behalf of the entire EU, which is a process we will prioritize during our time as chairman, says Minister for International Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade Johan Forsell.
Impacts will be made in sectors such as the mining industry, energy and electrification, medical technology, the food industry and defense materiel cooperation. The focus is on green transition and innovation issues.

During the evening, Australia's Governor-General General David Hurley and wife Linda Hurley gave a dinner in honor of Victoria and Daniel.
Victoria gave a speech in which she said, among other things:
"For me, this is a long-awaited reunion. I remember with fondness the last time I was in Australia. However, when I realised it was as far back as in 2005, I almost couldn’t believe it! Time certainly flies… To be able to come back with my husband is truly special.
On the other side of the globe, in a wintry Stockholm, I know that our two children are eagerly awaiting news on – among other fascinating things – Australian koalas and kangaroos."

New Zealand has declared national emergency after storm Gabrielle. In several parts of the country, buildings have been destroyed and residents are asked to stay indoors. In addition, trains and flights to and from the city of Aukland have been cancelled.
The court's information department's deputy director Johan Tegel is in Australia with Victoria and Daniel. When Svensk Damtidning reaches him by phone, he explains that it is currently too early to say whether Victoria and Daniel's visit to New Zealand will be affected.
- It is too early to say simply. This is a program that the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs is responsible for, so our embassy in Canberra is in contact with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, so we will simply see how the weather situation develops, he says.

It didn't turn out to be a particularly romantic day, but instead the love festival was filled with work.
When Victoria is asked if they had time for any celebrations, she replies:
- No, it didn't really happen, but it was a day with a nice program. But there weren't many "Valentines", says the crown princess.
But the couple still exchanged some nice words on the occasion of Valentine's Day.
- We noted that it was, but we are so far from home, she says.

LadyFinn, the tree being shown in one of the clips you posted is a rare plant … there are only about a hundred trees growing wild, outside of Sydney, in the world.

They were discovered some years ago, quite by accident.

It was only known from the fossil record until this small living group was discovered.

The exact location is still a government secret, though it is thought some people have discovered the location as a mould has been introduced.

The stand has also been under threat from bushfire, and was also damaged by the rotor blade of a helicopter when cones were being collected.

It has now been sent to other parts of the world to ensure it remains a living species and doesn’t die out.

It has been named the “Wollemi”, (woll-em-my).

That one being shown the Royal couple used to be encased behind heavy bars and was the first one people were able to see for themselves, a living thing from the time of the dinosaurs.

Now you can grow your own and help to ensure it’s not lost.
 
Victoria told to Svensk Damtidning that she has mixed feelings about being away from the children.
- It's going well, you accept that it's work. That's the way it is, but then it's always hard to be away from home. They have their days going on as usual, you know they are doing well.
Victoria and Daniel have made sure to video chat with the children as often as possible.
- Yes, when you simply get it. With today's technology, it's easy.
Earlier in the day, Victoria said that the children are jealous of the trip.
- They are asking (if they can come along next time), Victoria told reporters gathered to cover the couple's visit to Sydney Harbor near the opera house.
Victoria revealed that she and Daniel have been telling the children about their adventures in Australia, including an encounter with koalas in a national park.
At the reception today Victoria was asked what the children would like to see if they could come along next time.
- Everything that we tell them about, she answered with a big smile.
When asked if the children are jealous, Victoria replied: "Absolutely".

The royal couple visited the @genesiscareau clinic on Wednesday, to view the @elekta_ MR-Linac technology, made in Sweden. This technology enables us to deliver precise cancer treatments to our patients, as it uses high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging to target moving tumours.
The Crown Princess and Prince had the opportunity to take a look at the technology for themselves - and to meet our staff, doctors and patients over afternoon tea.
Thank you to the Crown Princess for taking the time to celebrate the incredible impact this technology has had on the lives of our patients."

- We want to see an expanded trade exchange and there is a great opportunity for that, says Crown Princess Victoria to SVT.
There are around 500 Swedish companies in Australia and the country is an important export market for Sweden.
- I am happy that we have a crown princess couple who are so interested in our fantastic Swedish companies. Having them here to promote our trade relations is extremely important, says Minister Johan Forssell.

The royal court about the two days in Wellington:
Visit to Te Papa
On Thursday, Victoria and Daniel visited the Te Papa National Museum and were guided through the Te Taiao exhibition, which focused on nature, sustainability and traditional knowledge.
Bilateral meetings
During the late afternoon and evening, Victoria, Daniel and Minister Forsell had bilateral meetings with the Speaker of the House of Representatives Adrian Rurawhe and then the country's Minister of Trade Damien O'Connor.
Welcome ceremony
Victoria, Daniel and Minister Forssell and the Swedish delegation were welcomed on Friday morning at the cultural building Wawhetu Maraeu outside central Wellington, in a traditional Maori welcome ceremony.
Part of the ceremony was the challenge of the wero, a Maori tradition to determine whether a visitor comes with peaceful intentions. After that, a short welcome dance – haka pōwhiri – was performed, after which Victoria and Daniel were welcomed in as guests and, among other things, performed hongi, when they pressed their noses against their hosts.
Football visit
During the morning, Victoria and Daniel also visited a newly built training facility ahead of the Women's World Cup in New Zealand later this year. They met sporting children and young people.
Visit to the Governor General
In the Governor General's residence, a lunch was then given in honor of the Crown Princess Couple by Governor General Dame Cindy Kiro.
During the lunch, Victoria gave a speech in which she spoke, among other things, about the recent storm in the country.
Visit to Zealandia Ecosanctuary
Outside the capital is Zealandia, a protected natural area that preserves and restores the ecosystems and biodiversity of the region. Within Zealandia there are a large number of unique bird species that are protected by fencing that keeps out predators. Victoria and Daniel visited the area for a shorter guided tour.
Meeting with the Swedish colony in Wellington
Victoria, Daniel and the Minister met Swedes living in Wellington at a reception arranged by the Honorary Consulate.
Dinner with the Mayor of Wellington
The days in Wellington ended on Friday evening with a dinner arranged by Wellington's mayor.

Victoria's speech, she said among other things:
"Visiting Te Papa yesterday and a Māori cultural building today has underlined to us the importance of the Māori knowledge and culture in your society.
It reminds us of how Sweden and New Zealand both share a rich cultural heritage from our respective indigenous populations. Traditional knowledge, passed down through generations, helps us to care for our environment and to build sustainable and inclusive societies."

"Earlier today we had the pleasure of visiting Zealandia Ecosanctuary. The Prince and I both share a passion for the outdoors, and we were so impressed with the beauty of the valley. We applaud you, Your Worship, and the Wellingtonian peoples’ dedication to preserving New Zealand’s extraordinary and unique ecosystems. Your focus to protect biodiversity is commendable. Here, with your Ecosanctuary, we get to understand that loss of biodiversity is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity today."

The last day in New Zealand in Hamilton.

Visit to SaveBOARD
"Swedish Royals visit saveBOARD – It was an honor to host Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel today at our saveBOARD plant in Hamilton as part of a Swedish trade delegation to New Zealand. It was great to showcase our company and what we do with all those who attended.
Thanks to Tetra Pak for helping organise the event for us. Even though our factory is not in the top 100 places to visit in New Zealand, they came because they were genuinely interested in our circular story; it all starts with cartons invented in Sweden. We even managed to take photos at the start of the tour and turn them into boards that went through our process. Their visit is has officially been made into saveBOARD…"

"Sweden and New Zealand both place a strong emphasis on sustainability and recycling and combating plastic pollution. We were greeted at SaveBOARD, which are an excellent example of how Swedish innovation in sectors collaborates closely with New Zealand businesses working for a green future. Our visit at SaveBOARD provided us with further information about Tetra Pak's operations and contributions to the manufacture of low carbon building materials."

Visit to Hamilton Gardens
The Embassy of Sweden in Australia at its Facebook
"Hamilton Garden is a lovely spot for a stroll; rather than focusing on botanical collections, the emphasis at Hamilton Gardens is on various forms of garden design.
Paula Southgate Mayor of Hamilton showed us around the Te Parapara Garden, the Māori garden, New Zealand's sole traditional Māori productive garden. The garden displays traditional food production and storage procedures, materials, and ceremonies derived from native Māori knowledge down from generation to generation.
Following a guided tour of Hamilton Garden, we were welcomed to lunch with Mayor Paula Southgate, where we also had the opportunity to meet with company representatives from Tetra Pak Australia and New Zealand Alfa Laval and DeLaval, and hear more about how they are contributing to sustainable solutions in New Zealand."

Victoria's speech at the seminar "Electrification in Sweden & Australia" on Monday February 13, it starts at 15.16.
Martin Bergström had designed the dress Victoria wore at the visit to the Royal Botanic Garden, the dress was created especially for Victoria's visit to the Garden and was inspired by the Swedish botanist Daniel Solander, who was an early European visitor to Australia. Bergström says that the flowers, however different they may be, we humans, wherever we are on earth, have a relationship with them. Somehow. The flowers in the pattern are from herbariums from the 1890s. So they have stayed in time from when they bloomed almost 130 years ago.

Paula Southgate, the Mayor of Hamilton, writes at her Facebook
"An honour and privilege to host the Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel today as part of a visit to discuss trade and opportunities. The weather was kind and the Hamilton Gardens looked amazing. They were taken by the concept of not just a botanic gardens, but a place where the history and story of gardens all around the world and across history was told. We were able to introduce them to key businesses with ties to Sweden such as Saveboard, Alpha Laval and Gothenberg. Her highness and I chatted about the importance of green spaces in big cities, sustainability and housing.
The Princess was delighted to see a group of Swedish citizens who waited patiently to catch a glimpse. Down to earth she stopped to chat and have photos"

Article about Victoria and Daniel's visit to Hamilton

Princess Victoria showed a great interest in the various styles of gardens throughout the tour. A number of local Swedish visitors had gathered in Time Court hoping to see the royal guests, and they were not disappointed.
The delight of both Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel when they emerged through a gateway to cheers and a sea of Swedish flags was obvious, and they spent time chatting with the excited visitors before posing for a photograph with them at the Princess’ suggestion.
Although they had been running late throughout the visit, the royal couple refused to hurry and clearly appreciated the hospitality on offer in our region, before departing for an official lunch hosted by the mayor.

Nobel Laureate 2011, Professor Brian P Schmidt, Vice-Chancellor of Australian National University at his blog:
As you may have seen in the media coverage, this week, ANU hosted Her Royal Highness, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, as part of her official royal tour in Australia. The Crown Princess was part of a very well attended event, focusing on the electrification of our society - and the challenges and opportunities that we will encounter as part of the green transition. It was a very special event for our students to attend and it was a great reminder that ANU, as the national university, attracts and facilitates conversations on a global scale with leaders from around the world. We have a responsibility to work with international partners to help solve the biggest challenges facing humanity. For me, it was nice to catch up with the Crown Princess and Prince - as she was my dinner companion when I received my Nobel Prize in 2011.

Anders Pihlblad, the host of "Kungahuset", TV4's annual program of the Royal Family, was interviewed about his trip with Victoria and Daniel when he arrived to the premiere of film Star Wars - the Mandalorian.

Pihlblad sayd this was the first time he had been on the trip, it was great. It was fun, it was interesting, everything had a very high pace, from early morning to quite late in the evening. He talked with Victoria and Daniel about quite a few things, among them being in a forest in the nature reserve where 80 % had burned down just a few years before and how this forest is recovered. It was very exciting conversation. Then in Sydney a few days before the World Pride Victoria also talked about Swedish LGBTQ young people who, according to several surveys, feel worse than straight young people and was very much in this matter. So they talked about many different things.

'I've never had such a personal encounter with a royal on tour than with Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria in Sydney'
If I wanted to reach out and hug Sweden's future Queen during her recent visit to the Sydney Opera House, it could have easily been done.
Rather than being surrounded by a ring of stony-faced and towering bodyguards, Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel had a relatively low-key security detail while in Sydney on Wednesday. (...)
To Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, well done. Australia would be more than happy to host another visit from Sweden's future Queen and King.
