 Thank you to Carmel Sanderson for your wonderful collage of photos of this two day excursion


Thirteen members of the Grovedale Marshall Probus Club embarked on a two-day trip to Bendigo on Thursday 24th March. The prime reason for the trip was to visit “Elvis: Direct From Graceland – The Life Of An Icon Explored” on show at the Bendigo Art Gallery

“Elvis: Direct from Graceland” featured around 300 authentic artifacts owned by Elvis Presley, direct from the icon’s Graceland home in Memphis, Tennessee – including his military uniforms, an amazing array of his famous jumpsuits – to personal items like Lisa Marie’s baby clothes, Elvis’ first job application and the crayon box he took to school.

Visiting Australia for the first time ever was a bright red convertible 1960 MG from the movie 'Blue Hawaii', the only car from his films that Elvis actually owned and had brought to the Hawaii location to get around in his free time. The exhibition also featured many items that rarely travel beyond the Graceland gates, including Elvis’ wedding tuxedo and Priscilla’s wedding dress, two costumes from the acclaimed television performance known as the '‘68 Comeback Special', and garments from his eclectic home wardrobe.


Thank you Merv for these great pictures too:
