Parkes, New South Wales is a town of approximately 10,000 people. It is the main town in the Parkes Shire Local Government Area. The original settlers called the place Currajong in 1853. It was surrounded by kurrajong trees. After Bushman’s Lead mine was established, the settlement was referred to as Bushman’s. Sir Henry Parkes, the “Father of the Federation,” was honoured by the town’s renaming in 1873. The area became very busy during the gold rush, around 1870, and there are still mining sites in the region. Sir Henry Parkes was born in Coventry, England, which was pronounced Parkes’ sister city in 1939. The town is on the Newell Highway for auto traffic, and on the Australian transcontinental railway. Today, Parkes is considered a scientific community, with the presence of Parkes Observatory. Scientists working at the observatory have been researching the skies with the radio telescope. They have also assisted NASA as a Southern Hemisphere relay station for several space missions. In addition to scientific research, other industries and endeavors are important to the Parkes area, including farming. Wheat and wool are the primary products of the region. Gold and copper mining, mostly at Northparkes, is an important part of the local economy.
