Parkes is a great place to stop and explore what the Central West of New South Wales has to offer.

No visit to Parkes would be complete without visiting the CSIRO Parkes Radio Telescope - star of the Australian movie 'The Dish'. The purpose of the mysterious looking dish can be described as 'listening to the stars". The Telescope is one of Australia's most prominent landmarks and part of Australia's scientific and engineering heritage.

The Henry Parkes Centre is a major cultural tourism precinct, incorporating the Visitor Information Centre and four unique collections: The King's Castle Elvis Exhibit, Motor Museum, Antique Machinery and extensive History Collection.

For fantastic views of Parkes, drive to Memorial Hill (Bushman's Street), one of the highest points in Parkes offering great panoramic views over the shire. Bushman's Hill is the site of one of Parkes' first Gold Mines, in operation over 100 years ago.
