ABOUT PARKES

Parkes is a thriving Shire located in central NSW, approximately 360km west of Sydney CBD and 300km north-west of Canberra CBD.  Parkes has its own regional airport servicing Sydney which is approximately 45 minutes by air. Regional Express Airlines (REX) operates three return flights between Sydney and Parkes on weekdays (over 1200 seats available weekly), providing high quality reliable and cost efficient regional air services for business, health, recretation, social and community needs.  A charter service also operates from the airport providing convenience for smaller groups of business travellers.

Parkes is known for its iconic attractions including the world famous CSIRO Parkes Radio Telescope and the internationally renowned Parkes Elvis Festival which has cemented Parkes as a must see destination for travellers touring regional Australia.  In the second week of January each year, over 25,000 visitors come to Parkes for the Parkes Elvis Festival to enjoy hundreds of events over five days, celebrating the King of Rock 'n' Roll's birthday, cementing itself as a premier event on the world stage.  Overall, the tourism industry generates more than $58 million to the Parkes economy.

Literally at the 'crossroads of the nation' Parkes is at the intersection of the Newell Highway (N-S) connecting Brisbane and Melbourne and the transcontinental railway (E-W) linking the eastern seaboard to Perth, making it one of the most significant locations in the future of transport and logistics in Australia.
