Roma is a large town of about 7000 people in outback Queensland, about 470 kilimotres west of Brisbane. The Warrego and Carnarvan Highways meet at Roma and we have been through this lovely town a couple of times.

The Visitor Information Centre can be found at the Big Rig Tourist Park on the eastern side of town and is a must see when visiting the area. Beautiful gardens and lots of mining machinery tell the history of the oil and gas exploration in this area - I also found great (unusual) gift shopping at this Centre.

A huge Easter Festival is held in Roma each year and we hope to make it along to this event at some time in the near future - I am told you must book your accommodation as this is a very popular feature on the Roma calendar. The Visitor Information Centre can help with booking and provide you with a timetable for all activities over this weekend.

Apparently Roma is also home to Australia's largest cattle sales and tourists are allowed to go along and watch this truly amazing outback experience - another one for my bucket list. This is a lovely friendly town and we enjoyed our stay.
