Roma is a compact city in South West Queensland. It used to be the site of a busy cattle trade, and these days there is a lot of agriculture and wheat growing in and around Roma. As it is connected to the Warrego and Carnarvon highways, visitors may want to hire a car in Roma in order to explore the city and the countryside. The rich history of the city is everywhere, including remnants of the massive cattle sales that took place - hiring a car in Roma and just having a drive around is the best way to uncover most of this amazing place
Roma is a great place to visit if you're a sun worshiper - the town is renowned for its subtropical climate; and although the weather is typically hot throughout the year, Roma has a surprisingly green landscape. Those planning on hiring a car in the city can see the amazing Carnarvon National Park, which contains the Carnarvon Gorge. The park contains both native and non-native plants, and is really spectacular - in parts you can see rock formations that are upwards of 35 million years old. By renting a car in the city, tourists can also access the Oil and Gas Museum, which contains the gas mining history of the town.
Day trip destinations in Roma are incredible popular amongst tourists. The Big Rig, on the Warrego Highwat, is all about the evolution of oil and gas exploration in Roma, including information about the aboriginal tribe that lived on the site beforehand. You can also head off on the Roma History Walk, which is a sign posted route with plaques along the way with information about important landmarks, which include a church with English stained glass windows, and an old school that was a war plane lookout during the Second World War.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
