Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will make Tanunda their first official stop on a whirlwind tour of SA today.

The couple are scheduled to take part in a street walk before meeting local artists and community groups.

The event will be their only engagement open to the public during the half-day stopover in SA.

After Tanunda, the royals move on to nearby Seppeltsfield for some wine and produce tasting before leaving for Adelaide, where Camilla will attend a domestic violence roundtable at Government House and inspect a collection of Coober Pedy opals from the SA Museum.

At the same time Charles will head to suburban Bowden to turn the first sod on a sustainable housing development.

The Prince’s Terraces is the result of a collaboration between The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community and leading residential developer Defence Housing Australia.

The prince created the foundation as one of his many charities as a forum to encourage the sustainable design and building of homes, workplaces and communities, taking into account local environmental and economic factors.

After the fleeting visit to SA the royal couple fly out to Canberra.
