Two drag-queens (Anthony/Mitzi and Adam/Felicia) and a transgender woman contract to perform a drag show at a resort in Alice Springs, a resort town in the remote Australian desert. They head west from Sydney aboard their lavender bus, Priscilla. En route, it is discovered that the woman they've contracted with is Anthony's wife. Their bus breaks down, and is repaired by Bob, who travels on with them.

According to director Stephan Elliott
, he took the three leads out in drag prior to the beginning of filming. None of them was recognized: Guy Pearce
took the opportunity to be outrageously rude, Terence Stamp
eventually forgot he was in drag and started hitting on girls, and Hugo Weaving
got super-drunk and lay under a table for hours, tapping his finger in time to the music. This last detail was incorporated into the film in the hotel room scene. See more
