Relocate to Parkes

Drawcards include a central location, strong economy and infrastructure, thriving industries, culture and great community.

“A progressive regional centre, embracing a national logistics hub with vibrant communities, diverse opportunities, learning and healthy lifestyles.”

A big reason why families and businesses are attracted to relocating to Parkes Shire is its geographical location. Here, at the intersection of the Newell Highway (N-S) connecting Brisbane and Melbourne and the transcontinental railway (E-W) linking the eastern seaboard to Perth, Parkes is ideally positioned to form a unique logistics opportunity for Australia.

Over 80% of the Australian population can be reached by road within 12 hours from Parkes.

This unique characteristic has made Parkes one of the most strategically significant locations in the future of transport and logistics in Australia. This importance of its location will be further boosted when the Inland Rail from Melbourne to Sydney is complete.

The strategic location combined with a strong diverse economy results in a significant Gross Regional Product (GRP) of over $1 billion per year for the Parkes Shire. The economy is underpinned by the key industries of agriculture and mining, but also has strong transport and logistics industry, retail and public sectors.
