We visit the Elvis Exhibition: Direct from Graceland in Bendigo, Australia.
As one of the most iconic figures of the 20th century, Elvis Presley is the stuff of music history legend. The Graceland home he shared with wife Priscilla Presley has been open to the public for over 40 years with streams of Elvis fans making the pilgrimage each year to visit Graceland to pay their respects and experience some of the Elvis magic.
Australians now have their chance to see iconic artefacts from The King of Rock ‘n’ Rolls life at a new exhibition at the Bendigo Art Gallery in regional Victoria.
With over 300 items on display including many of Elvis’ iconic jumpsuits, stage costumes, childhood memorabilia and iconic pieces direct from Graceland including Elvis and Priscilla’s wedding outfits, it is a rare opportunity to see these items outside of the US.
Music lovers, Elvis fans and history buffs will enjoy this exhibition and with additional insights into Elvis’ life and career, video footage and music there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Tickets to the Elvis exhibition are $30 for adults, $25 for concession and children under 5 are free. It is important to book tickets in advance, particularly on the weekends, as it is a very popular exhibition and tickets do sell out.
The exhibition is showing until 17 July 2022.
