We all had to hit pause on our plans in April to help stop the spread of COVID-19. But with restrictions easing on travel in NSW and school holidays starting today, it’s time to press play.
The popular CSIRO Parkes Radio Telescope and Henry Parkes Centre museums will reopen to the public tomorrow, 4th July.

“With restrictions still in place for intra-state and international travel, you’ve practically got the whole of NSW to yourselves – so, there’s no better time to take the regional road trip you’ve always dreamed of,” said Cr Ken Keith OAM, Mayor of Parkes Shire.
Just a reminder to safely explore the Parkes Region practicing good hygiene and social distancing to reduce this risk of spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community.
Remember to stay home if you are sick; wash your hands with soap and water or hand sanitiser; cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze; avoid handshaking, leaning on service counters and use online/contactless payment.
