Members of the public are invited to view the exhibition showcasing both contemporary and ancient Wiradjuri history curated by the Galari -Lachlan Reconciliation Group. The Wiradjuri nation have a rich cultural history in the Parkes area. Evidence of their occupation has been found in many areas in the shire.
