Wall of Fame

The Elvis Wall of Fame and replica ‘Graceland’ gates are situated at Kelly Reserve and were erected to honour pioneers of the Australian music industry. Each year, music fans gather on the first day of the Festival to celebrate the career of an Australian music legend and unveil a plaque in recognition of their achievements.

In 2018, we are happy to announce that Phil & Tommy Emmanuel will be jointly honoured during this event.

Join Phil Emmanuel, Parkes Shire Mayor Cr Ken Keith, friends and dignitaries as we pay tribute to the Emmanuel brothers’ brilliant career.

Western Road Liners runs a shuttle bus service to this location. See bus schedule for further details.
