A plaque commemorates the 30th Anniversary of the Apollo Moonwalk.

On 21 July 1969 the Parkes Radio Telescope brought television pictures of the historic Apollo 11 moonwalk to 600 million people around the world. This remarkable event was achieved thanks to the dedication and skill of the CSIRO and NASA staff at the Observatory - a collaboration that continued until the end of the manned lunar program in December 1972.
