Roma - Big Rig Oil Patch Tour
This morning we depart Surfers Paradise and head through Toowoomba and onto Dalby. Located in the heart of the rich and fertile Darling Downs, Dalby has the largest grain receival depot in Queensland. We pass through Chinchilla and Miles before arriving into Roma mid-afternoon. This afternoon we take a fascinating tour of The Big Rig Oil Patch, which takes visitors on an absorbing journey from Australia's first discovery of petroleum, through the boom and bust years of oil and gas exploration and onto today's multi-billion dollar industry. Tonight we stay at the Roma Explorers Inn, the newest motel complex in Roma.
