Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will officially rename Parkes Place as Queen Elizabeth Terrace and lay a a wreath at the Australian War Memorial during a brief visit to Canberra next month.
Completing a week-long visit to Australia, which will include attending the Melbourne Cup, a visit to the South Australian wine region and a meeting with NRL players at Bondi Beach, the royals will spend November 10 in the capital.
The feature of their visit will be the naming of Queen Elizabeth Terrace, which bounds the National Rose Gardens, the High Court, Reconciliation Place and Questacon, in honour of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The announcement of the renaming was made earlier this year.
The Duchess will also attend a reception for leading women in the community at Government House, while the couple will have meetings with Governor-General Quentin Bryce, Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott.
The wreath laying at the War Memorial will occur on the eve of Remembrance Day.
The couple won't stay in Canberra, instead flying out for New Zealand where they will spend several days across both islands.
Highlights of the visit to New Zealand include a visit to the Weta Workshop in Wellington, which was responsible for much of the costume and other design work for the Peter Jackson film The Hobbit, traditional Maori perforamances and a visit to the rebuilding city of Christchurch.
The couple's tour to the region includes a stay in Papua New Guinea before their arrival in Australia.
The Australian leg of the tour includes visits to Melbourne, Adelaide, Hobart and Sydney, as well as regional detours including Longreach and Richmond.
