Parkes is a town in New South Wales, which is surrounded by beautiful farmland. If you are interested in car hire in the city, then the Parkes Observatory is close by, Parkes has played an important part in the exploration of space, thousands of scientists go there to look at the stars every year - so don't miss out on this attraction. By hiring a car in the city you can also head out into the wonderful Goobang National Park. Parkes gets hot in the summer and cold in the winter - do your research so you know what weather to expect.
Parkes in New South Wales is the location of the CSIRO Telescope, which was the inspiration behind the film The Dish, and has had a lot to do with NASA missions and getting astronauts back to safety. It's only a short drive from the town for those hiring a car in Parkes, and the chance to see space 'close up', is not to one to be missed. We recommend renting a car in Parkes to go to nearby Peak Hill which has a mine which you can go and see during holidays, so check for dates. The War Memorial Lookout has lovely views of the town.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
