  • Kim & Dave are wonderful hosts & go the extra mile to make sure everyone is looked after very well. Dave is an amazing bus driver & seems to be able to negotiate tight spaces & narrow roadways in such a big bus. Was rewarded at the end of the trip with Mum's homemade biscuits. Thoroughly recommended.

  • Kim & David are very professional in what they do. They are a friendly & outgoing couple who go out of their way to make your holiday a very enjoyable experience. I have enjoyed my 2 trips with them this year & look forward to more. I can highly recommend their tours.

Excitement is in the air as today is the day to see Elvis …well a few lookalikes to say the least. We have a bit of travelling this morning before we reach the festival but it will be all worth it. We arrive in time to purchase lunch at one of the many food stalls at the festival markets which fills the park from corner to corner with many unique clothing, food and variety markets in operation. The rest of the day is free to explore – The Cooke Park Main Stage will feature free music and entertainment including competitions such as Miss Priscilla Look-a-Like, Elvis Look-a-Like, and the Cars of the Era Show showcasing the automobiles that ruled the road from a time when Elvis ruled the airwaves!

DAY 4 – THE ELVIS FESTIVAL

Sunday 10 January 2021

The Elvis Gospel Service is a beloved feature of the Festival program. The special interdenominational service on Sunday morning pays tribute to Elvis’s first love, gospel music, and celebrates Elvis through song and prayer. From humble beginnings of a small but very appreciative audience, the Elvis Gospel Service has grown to accommodate over 3,000 people. Reminiscent of a Southern Revival service, it will leave us all inspired and enlightened about the essence of Elvis. Next we visit the Henry Parkes Centre that houses the King’s Castle Elvis Exhibit “Walk a Mile in My Shoes – A Day in the life of Elvis Presley”. This interactive exhibit is designed to try and bring some of the highs and lows that Elvis Presley encountered throughout his life and career. The Parkes Motor museum is also in the same complex with an impressive collection of motor vehicles. Leaving here we head north of Parkes, where we visit the CSIRO Radio Telescope, also called “The Dish”. The visitor centre features many hands on displays and exhibits and our visit also includes an audio visual experience.

DAY 5 – CANOWINDRA AND COWRA

Monday 11 January 2021

Not too far away is the town of Canowindra. Canowindra is a small town, which was held up by the infamous Bushranger Ben Hall! Situated on the Lachlan River, Canowindra’s curving main street has a number of interesting old buildings dating back to the 1800’s. We’ll visit the Age of Fishes Museum home to some very rare and important fish fossils, which palaeontologists date to 360million years ago. They are a significant find linking fish to the first amphibians and we enjoy a talk by one of the local volunteers as well as viewing a video. From Canowindra we continue onto Cowra the town made famous by the POW Camp located here during WWII and the now famous “Cowra Breakout”. Our first stop is at the Visitor Centre where local information is available and a model of the POW camp is available for viewing. From here we visit the Japanese Gardens. The garden itself is designed to represent the landscape of Japan and features a stream cascading in waterfalls into two large ponds. Meandering paths and wooden bridges allow visitors to explore and view the gardens at ease. The Cultural Centre displays Japanese art history and crafts and has become known as the centre of Japanese Culture in Australia. We enjoy lunch and free time in the gardens to explore. Before we leave the area we visit the Australian & Japanese War Cemeteries. See the Garrison Gates which was the original entry to the POW Camp. The pillars stand as a memorial to the Australian soldiers killed in the breakout. Returning to Orange we meet a local expert, we are introduced to the town including Cook Park. A great way to end the day is a visit for a wine tasting at Orange Mountain Wines.

Breakfast and dinner in motel | lunch at Japanese Gardens

DAY 6 – ORANGE TO HAY

Tuesday 12 January 2021

We farewell our hosts this morning and travel south to nearby Forbes, a substantial country town famous for its connections with the bushranger Ben Hall. The town has some impressive buildings and fine parks and gardens associated with a large lagoon known as Lake Forbes, which bisects the town. On arrival we visit the McFeeters Vintage Car Museum, a purpose built facility that displays a vast collection of meticulously restored motor cars. The cars range from veterans to custom cars that are rare and just downright bizarre. Leaving here we head to West Wyalong Services Club to enjoy lunch. Bring a good book on-board or simply take an afternoon nap for our afternoon travels take us to Hay for our overnight stay.
