Itinerary Details

If you’ve timed your arrival for mid-afternoon, head to The Big Rig and book in for the Night Show Sunset Experience to discover the events that threatened to destroy the Australian oil & gas industry before it even began.
The Big Rig also doubles as Roma’s Visitor Information Centre, so allow time before the show to chat to the team about your weekend plans.

Get active and start your day by joining the local park run – a free 5km walk or run starting from The Big Rig Parklands (7am) or enjoy a lap around Roma’s Bush Gardens.
Grab a barista-made coffee or head out for breakfast at one of Roma’s cafes.

Head to the corner of McDowall and Wyndham Streets to learn about the significance of Roma’s 140 bottle trees before continuing to the Bungil Gallery and Community Arts Centre on Hawthorn Street to catch the latest art exhibition. Make sure you stop into one of the boutique gift and clothing stores along the way.
Hungry? Grab a bite to eat at one of Roma’s pubs, cafes or bakeries.

Soak up the local landscape along the ancient River Red Gum-lined Bungil Creek. The pathway is the perfect starting point to see some of Roma’s main attractions; Roma’s largest bottle tree, Lenroy Slab Hut, The Big Rig Oil Patch, are all within a 1km radius.

Start your day with breakfast surrounded by native flora and fauna at Moorelands Bush Nursery, 16km drive from Roma’s CBD. The Feed Shed serves breakfast (including the legendary bacon & egg Turkish roll) and homemade treats for morning tea on both Saturday and Sunday.
