Parkes Shire Council

Welcome to the Parkes Shire - a progressive, vibrant fun loving and welcoming community.

It all adds up in the Parkes region with its iconic events and attractions including world famous CSIRO Parkes Radio Telescope, and internationally renowned Parkes Elvis Festival that has cemented Parkes as a must see destination for travellers touring regional Australia.

 Parkes and the surrounding smaller towns of Peak Hill, Bogan Gate, Trundle & Tullamore combine as a progressive regional hub; from our foundations as an early gold discovery settlement, to our roots in the agricultural engine room of NSW; our anchor as an inland transport hub and our rich mining landscape.

 From the heights of Goobang National Park, to the plains of wheat and country villages, Parkes Shire boasts many sights to see - some well-known and others waiting to be discovered. We invite you to explore the hidden secrets that Parkes, Peak Hill, Bogan Gate, Trundle and Tullamore have to offer.

Parkes Visitor Centre Opening Hours:  Monday - Friday 9 am - 4 pm, Weekends and Public Holidays 10 am - 3 pm.

Address:  66-78 Peak Hill Road (Newell Highway) Parkes NSW 2870
