Roma, the centre of the Maranoa offers every modern convenience without losing its country charm.  Rich in agricultural prosperity, the town is home to Australia’s largest cattle-selling centre and visitors are welcome to experience the Saleyards first-hand by attending a free guided tour with a local.

Explore the Big Rig to discover the hardships and heroic stories of the oil drilling and exploration. A visit to the Oil Patch enables visitors to get up close to the impressive rigs that played a crucial role in the industry, interpretative displays, historical machinery including the last steam driven oil rig and one of the first diesel powered rigs used in Australia. The Big Rig’s spectacular night show is a must see for all visitors to Roma.

Wander through the heritage listed Avenue of Heroes which features 140 bottle trees. Each tree is dedicated to a local soldier who lost their life in the First World War.
