Parkes is a four-hour drive west of Sydney - travelling through the Blue Mountains, Bathurst and Orange.
Parkes experienced a brief but spectacular boom during the gold rush before it matured as the centre of a rich agricultural district. Much of its fortune goes back to visits in 1873 & 1893 by the Premier of NSW at the time, Sir Henry Parkes. The town (once Bushman's) was re-named to Parkes in his honour and the main street was named after his wife Clarinda.
