The royal couple were greeted by NSW Governor Marie Bashir and Premier Barry O'Farrell, who had waited through the rain and a half-hour plane delay.
Prince Charles, wearing a grey suit, waved to the gathered officials and reporters as he stepped out from the RAAF plane.
Camilla wore a cream overcoat and carried a matching handbag.
After a moment of chatting and warm handshakes, Charles and Camilla were whisked away into their waiting motorcade.
The crowds of Melbourne's racing carnival were absent but Camilla nevertheless offered a smile and a wave as she was driven away.
Sydneysider Kylie Bendell said she was thrilled to see the royal couple.
"Loved it," she said, adding that it was worth the two-hour wait.
"We were here at five to six, and we waited," she said.
Charles and Camilla will stay in Sydney until Saturday, taking in the sights, including a visit to the Opera House and to Bondi Beach.
"The public will have a chance to see Prince Charles in action when he hits the sand for a touch football match with NRL stars and indigenous students," the Daily Telegraph reported.
Prince Charles and Camilla arrive in New Zealand at around 9.30pm on November 10.
Prince Charles will celebrate his 64th birthday at a party in Wellington with 64 New Zealanders who also turn 64 on November 14.
