STAY IN PARKES

While you’re there, get into the spirit of Parkes … dress up like an Elvis and visit The Dish!

Parkes was put on the map back in 1969 when “The Dish” was used to televise the first moon landing, it’s still operating and you can go and visit! Check out this and more things to do around Parkes here

It is now the home of the Elvis Festival. People travel from all over the world just to celebrate all things “The King”. Check out more events in Parkes here

Vanfest is quite literally taking over Forbes, which means you may be hard pressed to find somewhere to sleep!

Of course, you can always set up camp on the festival site with our huge range of camping and glamping options below, but if you’re looking for more of a place to call home, why not check out Parkes? It’s only a short 15-20 mins away from Vanfest! 

Check out the full range of Parkes accommodation options via the link below! 

HOW DO I GET FROM PARKES TO VANFEST?

No one wants to be the designated driver of their group, so to ensure EVERYONE in your circle can have a great time, we will be running shuttle buses between Parkes and VANFEST each day. 

You can book your spot online, but they’re limited so get in quick!
