WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) - British royals Prince William and wife Kate plan to go jet boating and sailing during an adventurous trip Down Under, according to a Kensington Palace announcement Monday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, accompanied by 7-month-old son Prince George, plan to spend three weeks in Australia and New Zealand next month.

In New Zealand, which is known for its high-adrenaline tourist activities, the royal couple is planning to take a ride on a jet boat on the Shotover River in Queenstown and to try match racing on America's Cup sailboats. They'll also watch a rugby tournament as well as participating in the more traditional rounds of meetings, events and memorials.

In Australia, the couple plans to visit Uluru, the stunning Outback sandstone formation that's also known as Ayers Rock. They'll also visit the Sydney Opera House and the city's Taronga Zoo.
