Every year the small town of Parkes comes alive with a festival to celebrate the King of Rock n Roll’s birthday. The Parkes Elvis Festival is held in the second week of January, to coincide with Elvis Presley’s birthday. It boasts more than 150 events over five days of all things Elvis.
The Parkes Elvis Festival attracts more than 22,000 fans from across Australia and the world. The event features non-stop live entertainment, including the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, a street parade and a renewal of vows ceremony.
You just need to find a cheap campervan hire deal at Sydney and travel five hours west to be part of this iconic even. It’s an epic celebration of the life and music of Elvis Presley. Park your wheels at one of these places!
