Parkes, Australia

Parkes is a town in New South Wales and is often referred to as the “Gateway to the Stars”. This moniker was gained due to the Parkes Observatory setting up a giant radio telescope along with large satellites. From the stars to natural attractions like the Kelly Reserve, museums and festivals to enjoy, this locale is a great little place to spend an Australian holiday.
