Fans of The King are in for a treat with the long-awaited Elvis biopic about to hit Australian cinemas.

The film, directed by Australian filmmaker Baz Luhrmann, features an immaculate cast with Austin Butler bringing Elvis to life and Tom Hanks as the legendary singer’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker.

The film takes a deep dive into Elvis’ life, from childhood to becoming The King and has drawn praise from Elvis’ family for the perfect casting and accurate portrayal of the iconic star’s life.

In light of The King gracing silver screens across the world, the team at Travel at 60 have taken the love for Elvis a step further, curating the perfect holidays to pay tribute to The King.
