About Us

Elvis Australia : Official Elvis Presley Fan Club

Elvis Australia was founded in 1996 by David Troedson. The site began as 'For Elvis Fans Only' while the domain www.elvis.com.au was literally born from the concept of wanting to represent 'Elvis in Australia', so ... www.elvis.com.au ...

Our first website largely revolved around audio and photos before moving on to a new concept, that being 'news', with this website being the originator of the 'Elvis news' concept, quickly became the single most popular Elvis Presley fan site, (and remains so today), a fact our team of contributors is proud of.

Below, view the oldest front pages for www.elvis.com.au ... The website design is long gone but we managed to find several front page layouts, it is interesting to see how much wed design has changed!..

The Internet

My first PC came in 1996, and the Internet was of immediate interest, and with that, the idea of making a website came easily. And of course the website had to be about Elvis Presley!!

Becoming an Elvis fan

The seed of my Elvis obsession came in January 1978. Believe it or not at 13 years of age, I had never heard of Elvis Presley. Not until my grandmother mentioned his name on January 8, 1978 and the mornings newspapers were filled with remembrances and the all important Elvis poster, something I looked out for each Christmas holiday for, as I recall, several years.

My first Elvis record, 'Roustabout', played over and over (and over and over!!).

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
