The 2017 Parkes Elvis Festival will be the most accessible festival yet, with many options to travel by road, rail and air. For the first time in the Parkes Elvis Festival’s 25 year history, daily return aeroplane charters will transport city-siders from Sydney to Parkes. In another first, a daily bus shuttle will run from Canberra with a complete luxury
travel and accommodation package. The package includes return coach travel from Canberra to Parkes, four nights’ stay with breakfast at 4 star accommodation in Orange, and transfers each day.
Cowra Motor Inn is also offering a fourday package that includes accommodation, coach transfers, selected meals and event tickets. Other options are Visit Orange providing daily return shuttles on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and Cowra Tourism providing daily return shuttles on the Saturday and Sunday.
The daily Forbes shuttle returns with an increased service to and from the festival, while bus services to Peak Hill and the CSIRO Radio Telescope are also returning in 2017. It is expected the number of visitors to increase from the 22,000 attending this year.
