Day 1

Home – Madame Tussauds – Sydney
Our Queensland friends will fly to Sydney, joining fellow Elvis fans from the Hunter and Sydney. After purchasing your own lunch, visit Madame Tussauds, with over 70 near perfect sculptures of Australian and International legends; it is almost impossible to work out reality from real life. Later we will check into our accommodation with time to freshen up before a buffet cruise on Sydney Harbour.

Elvis Festival and Street Parade
Today we will make our way to Parkes for the Elvis Festival Street Parade. A day at leisure allows you to enjoy all on offer at the festival. You may like to sit and relax at the outdoor entertainment happening on the main stage in the park or you can choose to pre-book your favourites direct with the venues. A late return to our motel today ensures you can
attend the activities and dinner you most prefer.

mass renewal of wedding vows with Elvis at the Altar. This evening we will meet back together for dinner at a local hotel before enjoying the show at the Leagues Club.
