Getting Here

All roads lead to Parkes for Parkes Elvis Festival! The town is easily accessible by road, train or air.

Parkes is centrally located in Central NSW.

Parkes is literally the crossroads of the nation, strategically situated on the east-west rail corridor and on the major inland north-south road corridor of the Newell Highway.

The drive from Sydney to Parkes is five hours, via the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains, Bathurst and Orange. From Canberra, it’s a little over three hours. You can travel by train direct from Sydney on Mondays (or on the Thursday of the Festival!), while the flight from Sydney to Parkes Airport is only 65 minutes.
