Roma, Black Coffee!
Maranoa Regional Council is committed to working with the likes of TSBE to ensure we continue to support businesses that have invested in our region to grow. As well as seeking out \new investment opportunities that will allow our region to grow and prosper.
Maranoa is a key regional centre for agriculture, energy and resources, with the thriving and vibrant town of Roma truly at the heart of the region’s livestock industry. Packed with a wealth of immense natural resource, and with mature allied industries to complement and add value to extraction and logistics. Located in the heart of Maranoa, Roma offers a wealth of cosmopolitan facilities and lifestyle, including boutique retailers, cafes and eateries. Roma Saleyards – Australia’s largest such facility – sells over 275,000 cattle annually, serving the Maranoa region and beyond. The saleyards are more than just a transactional venue, with recent investment of $8.61m transforming the facility into a place of education, learning and community amenities.
As the gateway to the outback, Roma has a strong and diverse tourism sector themed around discovery of natural resources and natural wonder. Recently $4.68m was invested to expand The Big Rig Visitor Centre, improving its facilities and broadening the tourism offer in Roma. The Maranoa offers everything from fishing and farm stays to bird watching and bush walking. The region boasts national parks and tourist attractions including the outstanding natural beauty of the Carnarvon Gorge, on our doorstep.
