RomaRoma is known as the cradle of Australia’s oil and gas industry and is a fitting location for the Big Rig oil and gas museum. Roma was the very first site where oil and gas was discovered in Australia.
With something for all ages, the museum will take you on an absorbing journey from Australia’s first discovery of petroleum, through the boom and bust years of oil and gas exploration and on to today’s multi billion dollar industry.
Visit Roma's historic winery- Romavilla, operating since 1863. It's the oldest winery in Queensland.
Roma’s Cattle Sales are the largest in Australia and are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The raised walkways around the yards provide visitors with an excellent vantage point over the proceedings.
Visitors to Roma also quickly become aware of the numerous bottle trees growing in town. Hero’s Avenue consists of more than 100 bottle trees - each representing a local soldier who lost his life in the great war of 1914/1918.
Roma is the only place to be each Easter for fun and some real country entertainment. The Easter in the Country Festival offers an action-packed program for the whole family. Roma also has a great range of shops ideal for some retail therapy.
