Parkes has a nice grass track under lights! (it's only about 370m around).

Parkes Council Walking track

There is a marked track that weaves through the town of Parkes, NSW. It is about 17km long. It takes you past landmarks of the township. There are well marked checkpoint signs along the way which provide information about the point of interest.

This run does not go past the famous radio telescope (in the movie, "The Dish"). The radio telescope is 26km north of the Parkes township.

Start at the Parkes visitor centre. There is a map outside the centre that shows the run route.
