Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The "Rigger" is a life-sized statue of one of the two Californian oil riggers who came to Roma in 1923 to train the first oil riggers in Australia as Roma was a key to the early development of oil drilling. His name was John Machado and he became an Australian and remained in Roma until 1945 and died in Brisbane in 1974. The statue which is impressive ,sits outside the Information Centre and the 'Big rig"that tells the story of oil and gas in the region. Worth a look for its own sake even if you plan to go to the Big rig.
