SYDNEY (AP) - Britain’s Prince William and his wife, Kate, received a traditional Aboriginal welcome to the Australian Outback on Tuesday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the tiny town of Yulara, near the bright red sandstone monolith Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock.

Members of a local Aboriginal community performed a traditional song and dance for the royal couple at a cultural center. Locals presented the pair with gifts of jewelry and a wooden spear, and William and Kate presented certificates to students graduating from an indigenous training academy.

Later, the Duke and Duchess watched the sun set over Uluru.

William, Kate and baby Prince George are on a three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia.
