CSIRO Parkes Radio Telescope | The Dish


CSIRO Parkes Radio Telescope | The Dish

The famous Parkes observatory, as featured in the Australian movie The Dish, is a landmark radio telescope nearly 50 years old, yet still considered to be one of the best single dish radio telescopes in the world.

As well as a great view of the telescope, the visitors centre has displays, audiovisual and 3D presentations. There is also the Dish Cafe and a picnic area with free gas barbecues. Souvenirs and educational material are available.

Tune in to the universe at the dish and experience the awesome sight of this icon of Australian science, the achievements of the astronomers that use the Parkes telescope and the grandeur of the universe that they explore. Find out 363 days a year why the Parkes telescope is more than just a movie star.

Open 8:30am to 4:15pm daily except Christmas and Boxing Day.

Located 20km north of Parkes (just off the Newell Highway).
