Join 707 Operations for the Gracelander day tour to Castlemaine and Bendigo on Saturday 9 July.
Celebrating the Bendigo Art Gallery's Direct From Elvis: Direct from Graceland, the Gracelander will take you from Melbourne's Southern Cross Station to Bendigo for a day trip, or if Elvis doesn't shake you up, change trains at Castlemaine and join the Victorian Goldfields Railway and travel to the historic township of Maldon.
Your fare for the day includes entry to the Direct From Elvis: Direct from Graceland exhibition or travel on the Victorian Goldfields Railway.
The train will depart from Melbourne's Southern Cross Station at 9.10 am and arrive into Castlemaine at 11.15 am and Bendigo at 12.40 pm.
You can select from either option:
At Castlemaine, you have the option to change trains and travel with The Victorian Goldfields Railway on their heritage steam train service to Maldon. You'll have ample time in Maldon to enjoy lunch, returning to Castlamine in time to connect with the Gracelander on its return journey.
At Bendigo, a shuttle bus transfer will link you with the Bendigo Art Gallery, where you can immerse yourself in all things Elvis. Created in partnership with Graceland, the exclusive Elvis: Direct from Graceland exhibition explores the extraordinary life and style of Elvis Presley.
One of the most iconic public figures of the 20th century, Elvis's influence on music, design, art, and pop culture was profound. He is arguably the single greatest influence on the history of modern men's fashion, constantly referenced and re-mixed by designers and celebrities today.
Your train ride on the Victorian Goldfields Railway or transfers and entry into the Elvis: Direct from Graceland exhibition are included in your steam train fare.
Enjoy your afternoon in either Maldon or Bendigo before your steam train returns to Melbourne.
Departing from Bendigo at 4.58 pm and Castlemaine at 5.30 pm.
