Itinerary: Parkes Elvis Festival (4 days)
Day 1: Melbourne to Orange (L,D)
Departing Moorabbin airport at 9.00am, your Elvis extravaganza begins in Orange, in central NSW.
With rich volcanic soil from nearby Mount Canobolas, Orange has the ideal conditions for cool climate wines. Tour a few of the best wineries in the region, learn from viticulturists about their wines, and sample some of their wares. Graze on platters of locally sourced delicacies, visit an orchard to purchase fruit direct from the supplier and ease into the weekend!
You’ll have time to settle into your hotel before Dinner in the Vines at Twisted River Wines. Watch the sunset over the vines and enjoy a three course dinner with live Elvis entertainment.
Overnight: de Russie Boutique Hotel, Orange
What a wonderful four days! Island tours, small boat excursions, snorkeling, swimming, hiking, fishing excursion, eating, drinking, science talks and just plain chilling out. We did it all. The accommodation at Arajilla was superb, the staff were fantastic and the food was brilliant.
