Prince Charles arrived at Alice Springs Airport on Tuesday on the second day of his five-day, five-city tour of Australia.
The prince met members of the Royal Flying Doctor Service at the start of his brief visit to the central Australian outback.
Charles was greeted at the airport by six bare-breasted Aboriginal women from the Arrente tribe in Papunya.
He was treated to a traditional "Tjukurrapa Paiya" dance by women of the Arrente tribe.
The Prince of Wales waves an ochre-stained hand, gained from shaking hands with the women, at waiting fans.
Local artist Barbara Weir showed Charles her work when they met at Desert Park, in the Australian outback.
The prince was shown a selection of bush tucker but could not be persuaded to eat a live witchetty grub.
Photographers told Prince Charles to make sure he flushed when he looked at an eco-friendly bush "dunny".
Prince Charles failed to show at a stag party at Bojangles, Alice Springs, held in honour of his forthcoming marriage.
