Public access to visitors centres

In response to the COVID-19 situation, our Parkes Observatory Visitors Centre,
The Dish Café, outdoor viewing area and public toilets are currently closed.

The visitor facilities are expected to reopen on 23 August with physical distancing and other precautions in place.

When the Visitors Centre reopens it will be open 7 days a week from 8.30am to 4.15pm (including public holidays).

To ensure the safety of our staff and visitors, we ask visitors to practice good hygiene and social distancing to reduce the risk of spread of Coronavirus in our community. In addition, the following measures will be in place:

- Visitors who are feeling unwell or who have any cold- or flu-like symptoms will be asked to stay outside.

- Hand sanitiser will be available.

- Additional daily cleaning of high-touch areas will be conducted.

The Compact Array Visitors Centre also remains closed until further notice.
