Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have kicked off their first day in Sydney with a barge ride on the harbour ahead of a morning tea with Australian Defence Force personnel and their families.
The pair soaked up the sight of the sunny city as they travelled to Garden Island in a wooden ceremonial boat, the Admiral's Barge.
They shook hands and chatted with defence families during an informal meet and greet outside the Naval Heritage Centre.
The Royal guests will have morning tea with 140 navy, army and air force personnel who have returned from operations in places such as PNG and Afghanistan.
The royals are on a 13-day tour of the southern hemisphere and are in Australia for six days as part of the Queen's diamond jubilee celebrations. (AAP)
Sydney has been sent into a royal fluttter with Prince Charles meeting and greeting fans at The Rocks.
The Prince attended a fashion event - promoting Australian wool - at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
His next stop is the iconic Bondi Beach.
Michelle Taverniti gives an update from the tour to the Two Murrays as Prince Charles makes his way into the MCA.
One in five Australian workers are dealing with unpredictable hours. Professor Richard Denniss tells The Two Murrays not knowing what time you’ll finish work can lead to pressure on other parts of your life.
More than half of over 60s in Australia have embraced Twitter, Facebook and other social media. Nan Bosler of the Australian Seniors Computers Club Association tells John Stanley many spend more time online than their children.

Worshipping idols; these people are really having themselves on. They all obviously use toilet paper too! Can you imagine the arrogant hypocrite Republicans taking over things, they would be living better than Royalty. i.e.Labor's socialist, global warming Republican Governor General Ms. Quentin Bryce, goodness me she lives far better than Royalty with her lavish Admiralty House harbourside residence as her Sydney/Global base and she gets a massive pension-and for what? Global warming-climate change whatever comes to mind, the environment is now being used as the new $$$royal priority with $$$$republicans ruling it. There has to be a proper decent way that we could be doing things here. After all this is 2012 AD.Mark Friday 9 November, 2012 - 2:42 PM

It would of been good if the Royal Family were a little patriotic and protected their beloved England?? Just look at ruined, all but lost its sovereignty England now, sadly a once proud and mighty England is all but gone. This has all happened under the Royalties' blind-eye watch. I 'd like to be a fly on the wall in the palace to hear whats really happening in there.NEW ENGLAND Friday 9 November, 2012 - 11:52 AM
