Moonwalk into Parkes

Celebrating 50 years since the Apollo 11 Moon Landing

Be out there in the Parkes Region this winter season and be amazed by all things space + science when Parkes and the world celebrate the 50th anniversary of man landing on the moon.

In July 1969, the CSIRO Parkes Radio Telescope played an important role in history, when it received and broadcast the first Moon landing, Apollo 11.

CSIRO’s Parkes radio telescope received television signals that allowed six hundred million people, one fifth of humanity at the time, to watch the broadcast.

In celebration of this 50 year milestone, CSIRO will be hosting an open day weekend at 'The Dish' on the 20-21 July 2019.

We have also put together some great offers for the winter season to encourage visitors to explore more of the region and enjoy all events, attractions and experiences that the Parkes destination has to offer.
