Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC, Governor of NSW, and Dennis Wilson visited Parkes on Wednesday and Thursday last week as part of a wider Central West region tour.
“Dennis and I are pleased to be back on the road and delighted to be heading to the Central West,” said the Governor.
The Thursday program included a visit to the Parkes High School and the Parkes Radio Telescope where they were treated to a ‘ride’ on The Dish.
Judy Zielke, Chief Operating Officer CSIRO, and John Reynolds, Facilities Programming Director CSIRO, welcomed the Governor to The Dish.
She said it was so good to be able to experience all the tourism sites in the Central West first hand so she could go back and tell people about it and encourage them to visit the region. “There is so much to see and do here.”
