Background: SYNOPSIS: Children flashing through the water in Hobart's Olympic Pool this afternoon won the admiration of their queen.The Queen enjoyed the carnival so much she overstayed her scheduled time by ten minutes.
After the formal welcomes of the morning, the carnival was a change of pace for the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh; an informal, relaxing time among Tasmanian children.
The Queen was received by Mr.M.L.Moore, President of the Tasmanian Amateur Swimming Association.
Racing before their Queen, the young swimmers gave their utmost in the race, so much so that in half-an-hour, four junior records were broken.
More than two-thousand from many schools and swimming clubs throughout the State packed the stands.An added attraction was the fly-past of the black diamonds, the crack aerobic squadron.
The Queen was particularly interested in events for children under ten, and remarked to Mr.Moore, her host, that she was surprised to see children so young swimming competitively.
When the Queen made no move to leave, Prince Phillip eventually suggested that it was time to go.Members of the Tasmanian Swimming Team were presented to her Majesty.The children cheered wildly as the Queen left to drive Mount Wellington.For them, it was a perfect afternoon, and on that the Queen and Duke obviously enjoyed.
Cloud of the mountain top did not deter the Royal Couple from making traditional visit to the Pinnacle of Mount Wellington.All morning, the trip had been in doubt because of a thick overcast blanketing almost the whole of the mountain.But after lunch the cloud began to break up.
The royal couple were received by Doctor Bryden, Secretary of the Royal society of Tasmania.In an open car the Queen and the Duke had braved the chilly four-thousand feet above Hobart.
Doctor Bryden pointed out spots of interest in the vast panorama from the mountain lookout.Despite blanks of cloud rolling past, the royal visitors had good views of Hobart, its suburbs and rolling hills beyond.
The Queen walked to the southern side to look back down the Derwent and along the course of the Britannia's voyage upstream this morning.she had a clear view to the River mouth twelve miles away.
The Tasman Bridge, arching out across the derwent was a new shape on the Hobart landscape since the Queen's last visit in nineteen-fifty-four.For the Royal couple it was a typical tourist's view of Hobart.
thousands packed the stands at Prince's wharf to see the Royal couple return to the Britannia, even the youngest wanting a snapshot for the family album.The Queen is now giving a dinner party on board.Later this evening Her Majesty will hold an Investiture at Government House.
An eventful first day for the Queen and one of emotion and pleasure for her Tasmanian subjects.they greeted her with warmth and sincerity.
