Best Answer

The New South Wales town of Parkes is named after statesman Sir Henry Parkes. This town is where Australia's famous "Dish", or Radio Telescope, is situated. The Dish had a significant role in covering the Moon landing in 1969. In Canberra, the suburb of Parkes and the road Parkes Way are both named after him also.
