Parkes is a small town in the beautiful Australian state of New South Wales. Named after one of its most prolific founding figures, Parkes has an interesting history - most notably concerning the region's gold rush of the 1870s. A clear highlight of the skyline in Parkes is the immense radio satellite dish which belongs to the local observatory – a powerful instrument used for receiving data from outer space. Your best bet is hiring a car from Parkes Airport so you can see as much of the landscape as you want in a much smaller amount of time.
One of the town's most popular tourist attractions is the CSIRO Parkes Radio Telescope; located 20km from the town centre, we'd recommend you hire a car from Parkes Airport to access attractions like this one. Take a journey through history and go on a Gold Trails tour where you can learn all about the crucial role Parkes played in the gold rush days. Last but not least we recommend visiting Goobang National Park; a short distance up the A39 road from Parkes and filled with beautiful mountain valleys and gorges which are a lot of fun to hike across.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

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.
