Description

A 350 kilometre drive north-west of Toowoomba, Roma is the quintessential country town, rich in pioneering history. As a visitor you can be assured of a warm welcome, plenty to explore and all the services a traveller could want.

There's a varied calendar of events from Picnic Races, the Roma Cup and Easter in the Country, to the multicultural Santos Food and Fire Festival and all the fun of the Roma Show, so plan your trip to mix it with the locals.

To get a real feel for the town, take a walk along the heritage-listed Heroes' Avenue planted with more than 100 bottle trees - each a memorial to a local soldier who lost their life in World War I. It is also worth a visit to the Mt Abundance Homestead - built in 1860, the site of the region's first settlement, which had important links to early explorers Sir Thomas Mitchell and Ludwig Leichhardt.

Don't miss the Big Rig Oil and Gas Interpretative Centre and Night Show for an interactive insight into the hardships and heroic stories of oil drilling and exploration. Visit the 'Oil Patch' to get up close to impressive rigs and one of the first diesel powered rigs ever used in Australia.

And remember, if you're keen to perch on a fence and watch the action at Roma Saleyards - the largest in the Southern Hemisphere - be sure to time your visit for a Tuesday or Thursday and you can witness the sale of up to 12,000 head of cattle in a single day.
