http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roma,_Queensland

Roma is a town in the western Darling Downs area of Queensland, Australia, 515 km (318 miles) by rail WNW of Brisbane. It is situated at the junction of the Warrego and Carnarvon highways. It is the centre of a rich pastoral and wheat-growing district,[citation needed] The town was incorporated in 1867 and is named after Lady Diamantina Bowen (née Roma), the wife of Sir George Ferguson Bowen, the Governor of Queensland at the time. Beef, grain and wool are its chief industries.

It has a population of 6763  and is in the Maranoa electoral district. It also serves as a centre for the larger Maranoa Region.

Bore water for the town is obtained from the Artesian Basin.Many homes have a tank for rainwater delivered by a third tap at the kitchen sink as the town water has a strong taste.

Hotels, pubs, and churches feature prominently near the centre of town. The ten hotels are within easy walking distance with most adjacent to another hotel.[3] St Paul’s Church of Englandis a copy of a 13th Century English Church in the shape of crucifix.
