Mobile service centre coming to Nyngan, Narromine

Residents in the Parkes electorate will have easy access to services like Centrelink and Medicare with the mobile service centre hitting the road.

The Golden Wattle will visit Narromine, Trangie, Warren, Cobar, Nyngan, Coonamble, Coonabarabran and Gilgandra from October 29.

Member for Parkes Mark Coulton said he was pleased to see the mobile service centre continue its travels through his electorate, particularly when it had such a strong track record in helping people.


"This is a great opportunity for local farmers to speak to the on-board Farm Household Case Officer about assistance and support for which they may be eligible," he said.

"There will also be friendly, specialist staff ready to assist with Centrelink claims, Medicare registrations, Department of Veterans' Affairs programs, online services and more."

No appointments are needed and it's free to use.

"I urge anyone who needs tailored support to visit the team aboard Golden Wattle over the coming weeks," Mr Coulton said.
