From leading the Elvis Festival Street Parade to opening our doors at our Open Day, we are enthusiastic and active event hosts and participants in the Parkes and Forbes communities.
Parkes Elvis Festival

Northparkes are long-time supporters of the Parkes Elvis Festival. It is a great way to showcase the creativity and passion of employees and the region.
Each year, our employee pipeline, which is made up of graduates, apprentices, scholarship holders and vacation students, are given the opportunity to get involved by designing and building the Northparkes float, for the festival’s Northparkes sponsored street parade.
The parade is a major highlight of the Parkes Elvis Festival. Elvis-themed floats, vintage and classic cars and motorbikes, led by Northparkes, travel down the main street of Parkes in front of thousands of Elvis fans. Our employees and their families are invited dress up and jump on board our float to join in on all the fun.
We look forward to seeing everyone again in January 2024!
Family Day is an exclusive opportunity for our workers to bring family and friends to site and showcase where we work every day. There will be plenty to do for the whole family, including tours through our ore processing facility, the underground SCADA Control Room, the underground surface operations, the laboratory, the warehouse and the workshop.
The kids’ corner features jumping castles, a rock climbing wall, face painting and entertainment. On display our some of the heavy machinery used on site and booths on what all are different departments do!
Family Day will be held on Saturday, 29 April 2023
Peak Hill Community Boori Christmas Party

Being able to support community events is always a joy. The Peak Hill Community Boori Christmas party is a fun filled day for the families in the community to come out and socialize. The highlight is of course Santa with his police and motorcycle reindeer escort.
Looking forward to being invited back again to support in 2023!
