Roma, Queensland

Roma is an attractive centre located 479 km west of Brisbane, South West Queensland, and 300 meter above sea level. This thriving community of nearly 7 000 people lies at the heart of a rich sheep and cattle grazing area and boasts the largest store cattle market in Australia.

Wyndham Street, which runs at right angles to the main street, has two impressive rows of bottle trees which were planted after World War 1. There is supposedly a tree for each soldier from the district who was killed in the war. It can grow to 18–20 meters in height and its trunk has the unique shape of a bottle.
