Farewell Yellow Brick Road

You've seen Rocketman on the big screen (and again at an openair cinema) and danced to Sir Elton John's biggest hits at his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. Now, you can celebrate the Rocket Man at The Grounds of Alexandria's new immersive ode to the famous UK singer.

Sticking around for only a limited time, until March 22, the Grounds' latest OTT installation is decked out in a rainbow of tinsel and neon, a huge rocket, a giant crocodile, wings, a red piano and, of course, a yellow brick road. As you walk through the colourful wonderland, we're sure you'll be singing (out loud or at least in your head) the likes of 'Tiny Dancer', 'Candle in the Wind', 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart' and 'Crocodile Rock'.

If you're still standing when you get to The Cafe, you'll find a couple of themed treats to match this latest installation — and you'll be pleased to know they're as colourful as the laneway itself. Piano Man, Super Star and Rocket Man cookies are on offer, as well as a Tiny Dancer cake (with vanilla sponge, yellow plum confit and vanilla cream). A frozen slushie — dubbed Still Standing — with pineapple, coconut cream and edible gold stars is available in the Garden, too.

A heap of official Elton John Farewell Yellow Brick Road merch is also available to buy at a pop-up shop — and you can win a stack of it by entering The Grounds X Elton John photo comp. More info over here if you're keen.

Farewell Yellow Brick Road is open from 7am–9pm daily.
