Prince Charles and his wife Camilla visited the small regional Queensland town of Longreach on Monday (November 5), during the Australian leg of their 13-day Pacific tour.
The Royal couple first watched a demonstration by the Royal Flying Doctor Service at the Qantas Museum Hangar at Longreach Airport.
The Prince of Wales and his wife also toured the Stockman's Hall of Fame, a museum dedicated to the cattle trade, where Camilla briefly held a baby Red Kangaroo.
Later on Monday the Prince met local families at a community barbecue in Longreach.
"It is more than 15 and a half thousand kilometres from London to the Stockman's Hall of Fame and I'm so jetlagged that I feel a few sausages short of a barbie," he said with a smile.
Prince Charles told guests that it was the Duchess of Cornwall's first official visit to Australia.
The couple will spend six days in Australia before travelling to New Zealand.
