Oct 19, 2016 - Continuing to head North ....Roma

Easy start from St George as we went for a tour of the town along the river bank - not a big town so it didn't take long. Quite pretty. We then headed north towards Roma - through the small rural town of Surat on the Balonne River before hitting Roma around lunch. We booked into the caravan park to do the washing before we headed back into town to the Big Rig Centre. Here we looked at the centre which showed the evolution of gas and oil mining in the region and had some excellent displays and machinery to look at. Back into the main street...

Sep 16, 2016 - Roma

It rained all day yesterday & what's even worse, I had to get out the long pants for the first time in weeks. It was only about 20C, so not freezing but when you're used to 33C it was a bit of a shock. Today was cloudy but fine & I even got a couple of loads of washing dry although I hung them out under the awning because I didn't trust the weather. There's a break in the weather but more rain forecast tomorrow afternoon so I'm taking the opportunity to move on in the morning. I drove around Roma this afternoon & took some photos,...

Sep 14, 2016 - Capella to Roma

An uneventful drive but as I got closer to Roma I could see heavy rain clouds looming on the horizon. A pleasant, quiet caravan park on the northern side of town & I just got set up when the rain hit. Plenty of rain in the evening & overnight so I'll stay put here for a few days until it clears.

Jul 11, 2016 - Carnarvon to Roma

Monday 11 July Time to move on again, and leave Carnarvon behind us. A delightful four nights spent in the National Park. It was a busy place, probably helped by school holidays. Lots of families, and we commented on the good behaviour of all the children and teenagers there, all just enjoying themselves, and ever so polite when we met up anywhere. An easy drive today. Had a roadside break somewhere en route to Injune. Next stop was Injune for the dump point, and then some lunch before continuing on to Roma. All settled for an overnight...

Mt Surprise Reunion

Jun 26, 2016 - DAY 69

Day 69 Drove down to Carnarvon Gorge this was very interesting as most of the road was bitumen and the last part was dirt. We passed many a 4x4 towing a caravan and they all had hard tyres and the vans not a dust trace on them, we wondered how they coped with the dust and corrugation. Through Injune in June and down to Roma where we found a great camp site where we cooked on an open fire, The wind was bleak but we were warm in the camper

RUSSANDY 2016

Sep 22, 2015 - Day 87 - 90 / Roma

Something a bit different tonight - a farm stay. We are 6kms north of Roma on a farm with sheep, chooks, a pig, a pony and some cattle. There are quite a number of vans here. I just heard a new arrival being told that there are only 2 powered sites left at 3:30. We have been into Roma to check on a new headlight which would have cost nearly $400 all up and had to come from Toowoomba so we decided to leave it until we get home and make an insurance claim. The lights work apart from the parker and the broken glass is not too...

Dec 9, 2014 - Roma

Hello all, Had to come into Roma to get the van's air con fixed, which happens on Thursday, but it's just as well I did, because there have been lots of problems lately. To begin with, one of the arms broke off my glasses a few days ago so I am having to use an old pair which is doing the job ok. I will have to be somewhere for over a week in order to get a new pair so i am thinking about that. Then a few nights ago Baby Girl threw up in the middle of the night, I woke up but not in time so it got on both sheets, the mattress protector, the...

Oct 31, 2014 - Roma

Well I guess you are all hanging out wondering if the plumber turned up. OF COURSE NOT!! When he hadn't materialised by 5.30 I decided he wasn't coming, surprise, surprise. Guess they're the same the world over. and it's a pity because it has cost me $70 to stay in the caravan park purely so that I could get this fixed. Anyway, I got under and fixed it myself. didn't have much choice really, and should have had more confidence in myself from the start. I replaced the entire piece of hose, thereby removing the troublesome joiner and, voila!...

Oct 31, 2014 - Mitchell and Roma

Hi Everyone Not much too report at the moment. I spent the night before last at Mitchell at a campground called Neil Turner Weir. A large campground, nice grassy sites, but the bloody insects at night drove me mad. They come straight through the flyscreen and into your hair. Made me spit the dummy and move on the next day to Roma where I am in a caravan park waiting for a plumber to turn up this afternoon (yes, I know, the terms "plumber" and "turn up" is an oxymoron) and fix this bloody leak, which prevents me from having running water,...

May 5, 2014 - Roma

05/05 – Moving through towns that are far apart and not much in between. Roma is a big town named after the Governor Generals wife at the time Diamentina de Roma. (pretty name). The streets have what they call bottle trees, very similar to our boab but different leaf. Fluro shirts everywhere and the airport has mining cars to the hilt. I think there is a gas project going on, Santos is there also. Didn’t stay for long and moved to Injune for the night in a caravan park as there were not any free camps that we knew of in the area until we...

May 21, 2012 - Thargomindah to Roma

14th - 15th Thargomindah. The roads heading west are very narrow, only one lane but everyone we meet coming the other way is very courteous, they slow right down and we both get off the edge of the road (very solid edges) to minimise stone damage. We stayed in the Explorers Caravan Park, what a surprise, green lawns, excellent amenities and very friendly owners ( Paul & Ide) they made us very welcome. Thargomindah is a neat little town with a lovely walk on the river. It is also home to a local identity known as Surly Shirley the owner of...

Jazzabout Trip 2012

May 7, 2011 - Roma

30th April. On the road again, we are heading for Roma 265 klms from Rolleston. We stopped for morning tea at Injune, which is another small town, it is a bit bigger and a lot more progressive than Rolleston, it has a few new buildings and businesses. We stopped for about an hour and had a walk around, we continued on to Roma where we booked into the Big Rig Caravan Park for two nights, depending on what we find to do we may stay a bit longer. 1st May. This morning we did the washing then went to check out Roma...there’s not that much to...
