Outback Awards show town just gets it
ROMA was last week announced as the next host of the Queensland Outback Tourism Awards, which shines a light on the many things the town is good at.
Whether it’s Easter in the Country, the Roma Show or the Roma Races, the town always pulls together to put on a spectacular event for the thousands of visitors that show up.
This is all due to Roma’s proven ability to work as a high-functioning operator that is always up to the task, no matter how big the assignment.
This is thanks to the town’s many amenities and attractions that serve the town so well and stay in the minds of people who make decisions about where events should be hosted.
The region’s airport continues to be a huge asset, with four flights a day consolidating the town’s reputation as an important regional hub for the southwest.
Having a high volume of available accommodation is also a big asset and with Roma’s abundance of hotels and motels, travellers will always have a place to stay when they visit.
Most importantly though, it’s the population that helps the town build the reputation it has.
Were it not for the hospitality and professionalism exhibited by residents, then the Maranoa would not be able to host the multitude of renowned events that has delivered consistent economic benefit for so many years.
