About the area

Parkes is a rural town in NSW that is supported by a gold and copper mine; the town attracted significant attention during the gold rush of the 1870s, and even to this day modern mining companies still have sites in the region. There is a rich variety of farming conducted in the region, and the staple farming products are wheat and wool. The main tourist attractions are the annual Parkes Elvis Festival, which is held in early January to celebrate Elvis Presley's birthday and, to boost tourism, the CSIRO Telescope (20 kilometres from the practice), which is where the movie “The Dish” was filmed. Bushmans Hill is just a three-minute drive from the practice, which is a great place to explore, being the site of one of the town’s first gold mines, which operated over 100 years ago. Development planning has begun for an "inland port", which would see Parkes Regional Airport expanded considerably, to serve as a starting point for domestic and international freight destined for areas in NSW, VIC and QLD.

The town has a significant population of school-aged students, as it has many schools, several within close proximity of the practice. There is plenty more to do, with historical museums, accommodation and restaurants. The area has many parks and an abundance of bushwalking and bird watching, surrounded by beautiful scenery of native plants and orchids. Parkes is also home to the Parkes Spacemen rugby league club.
