The King’s Castle is Australia’s only chain of permanent exhibition of artefacts that were owned by Elvis Presley. It includes items owned by Greg Page, the Original Yellow Wiggle whose items have featured in the Graceland Authenticated Auction at Graceland in 2014.
The King’s Castle opened in the NSW central west town of Parkes in January, 2009. It began in a small building, known as Moat Cottage, and the following year moved to the bigger venue of The Henry Parkes Centre, which now incorporates the Parkes Visitor Information Centre, The Parkes Motor Museum.
Visitors to the complex can see both museums (The King's Castle and the Motor Museum) for one low admission price, which includes these priceless artefacts that can only be seen here, in Australia.
The collection is owned by Greg Page, and The King’s Castle is a joint venture project between Greg Page and the Parkes Shire Council. Over time, the collection has included more than 1500 items, ranging from the original cape made for Elvis’ Aloha from Hawaii concert in 1973, a 10 carat diamond ring gifted to a fan at a concert in 1975, a two-piece leather stage suit worn in 1974, as well as instruments, furniture, documents, movie clothing and more.
In May 2014, Greg was very honoured to be asked to be a part of Graceland's first-ever "Auction at Graceland", an auction of artefacts authenticated by the archives department at Graceland themselves. Items featured in this inaugural auction include a Gold and Diamond Lion Mask Pendant worn by Elvis when he met President Nixon in the Oval Office at the White House; Elvis and Priscilla's Marriage Certificate; the last Cadillac purchased by Elvis for his own, personal use; a Martin D28 guitar played on stage by Elvis during his last Las Vegas engagement, and many more.
In August 2019, The King's Castle will be opening a second museum in the Gold Coast at the Italo-Australian Club. Just like the Parkes museum, The King's Castle on the Gold Coast will take you on a journey through the life and times of the world's most iconic, legendary and influential performer.
