This year is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and the first time man walked on the moon. The pictures were transmitted live to a worldwide audience from the CSIRO Parkes Radio Telescope ‘The Dish’, just 15 km north along the highway towards Queensland. To celebrate the event we have renamed the property Apollo Motel Parkes. New things are happening and it is to be a big year ahead.
The motel is located next to Parkes Visitor Information Centre, home to the Elvis Museum. This unique attraction is a must for lovers of Elvis or anyone interested in seeing Elvis memorablia. His music is legendary and Parkes has a popular Festival every January dedicated to all things Elvis.
Apollo Motel Parkes offers quiet ground floor accommodation. All rooms are set well back from the road and located behind reception. Rooms are not situated along the highway like other motels.
Rooms feature air conditioners, queen beds, split-system air conditioner, ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower, 32" flat-screen television, lounge, table & chairs, tea & coffee making, toaster and microwave, plates, cutlery and fridge. FREE Wifi is provided to every guest at check-in.
The complex is situated on over an acre of flat land with ample off-street parking space for cars with boats and trailers, usually beside your room. Wide dedicated parking spaces are situated outside the door of every room.
There is a Saltwater Outdoor Pool.
