SYDNEY (AP) — Britain’s Prince William, his wife, Kate, and their baby son, George, have arrived in Sydney to kick off their tour of Australia.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge landed in Sydney on Wednesday after wrapping up a 10-day trip around New Zealand. They were greeted by various dignitaries, including Prime Minister Tony Abbott, before being whisked off to the city’s famed Opera House for a welcome reception.

The family is on a three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia.

While in Australia, they will visit the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, meet some local wildlife at the city’s harborside zoo, and travel to Uluru, the iconic Outback sandstone monolith that’s also known as Ayers Rock.
