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 Dinner cruise on Sydney Harbour.


Day 2

Sydney - Elvis Express - Parkes - Forbes
All aboard the Elvis Express, operated by NSW Trainlink. As we make our way to Parkes, enjoy a drink and snacks while admiring the Western Slopes of NSW. There will be onboard festivities and celebrations at Central on departure! Late afternoon, our coach will be waiting to transfer you from Parkes Railway Station to Forbes, where you can unpack and settle in for the next four nights.

Day 3

CSIRO Radio Telescope Discover Centre - Elvis Festival
This morning we stop at the famous Parkes 'Dish' and the CSIRO Radio Telescope Discovery Centre for a presentation about the telescope, radio astronomy and some of the achievements of the astronomers who use the facility. Later, visit the Henry Parkes Museum before exploring the Elvis Festival for the remainder of the day. Take time to enjoy the variety of entertainment and purchase your own dinner while we are here.


Day 4

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 prebook your favourites direct with the venues. A late return to our motel today ensures you can attend the activities and dinner you most prefer.


Day 5

Elvis Gospel Church Service
It is recommended that you bring a folding chair for today as we are attending a special interdenominational Elvis Gospel Church Service in the park. The rest of the day is at your leisure at the festival. Outdoor entertainment on the main stage will include the Elvis winners concert and an Elvis Tribute Artist Guest Performance. You will also have the opportunity to see the 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.

Day 6

Forbes - Parkes - Elvis Express - Sydney - Home

On arrival back into Sydney, your AAJ coach will be waiting to transfer our Queensland passengers to the airport, before continuing drop-offs through the Central Coast to The Hunter.
