Roma was settled as a town in 1862, named after the Queensland Governor’s wife,
it was her maiden name. Water was becoming a problem, so in 1990 a well was drilled and natural gas was discovered and so began the oil and gas industry. Australia’s history of oil and gas exploration is best seen at The Big Rig which has shows daily. Or just relax with a glass of wine at Queensland’s oldest winery, Romavilla Winery. Roma has Australia’s largest cattle selling yards and tourists are permitted to attend market day.
