To See And Do In Parkes
Parkes and nearby Forbes are located on the beautiful undulating plains that lie to the west of the magnificent Great Dividing Range. It’s a gateway to the rugged outback, old mining towns, glorious open spaces and beautiful sunsets. A little north of Parkes is the incredible Parkes Observatory. Here you’ll find the iconic CSIRO radio telescope, or The Dish, as it’s known locally. The Parkes Observatory Visitors Centre allows visitors to view the dish as it moves. There are exhibits about the history of the telescope, astronomy, space science and a 3-D movie theater.
Henry Parkes Centre
Within walking distance of North Parkes Motel is the well-known Henry Parkes Centre. Inside you’ll discover four unique collections. There’s the fascinating Antique Machinery Museum, Henry Parkes Museum, Parkes Motor Museum and finally, the ‘Kings Castle’ which has interesting Elvis personal artifacts. All of these places are a must-visit when you’re in the area.
