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.

- We enjoyed our stop at the Big Rig. It was informative, available, neatly presented and there were plenty of people on hand to answer questions.
We didn't take part in the night talk but it did look interesting.
We took our bikes off the car and did a short ride around the shared paths behind the Big Rig. There were public toilets on hand as well.Written 20 July 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- The was amazing. There were many sculptures, all very well done and must have taken hours, weeks of workWritten 22 September 2023
- Lucky timing to catch the church open but missed the guided tour. Pamphlets available inside detailed the history of each stunning window and the pipe organWritten 23 May 2023
- Well worth the visit for car enthusiasts (or even if you are not) - a great and interesting collection. Robert and Edith took time to share their passion and experiences with us and introduced us to their pet Texas Long Horns!Written 29 June 2023
- What a remarkable site to see each hero's plaque standing by a bottle tree in remembrance. A remarkable tribute.Written 6 October 2022
- This was included as an evening activity on work trip to Roma. The self guided tour around the grounds and up The Big Rig tower was very informative and highly enjoyable and the sunset from the top was just lovely. The EMSCO rig was cool to see and the night show was equally as enjoyable and entertaining! Justine (hope I got her name right) was kind, knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
Overall, it was thoroughly enjoyed!Written 8 November 2022
- A simple war memorial in a tiny town in central Queensland with an amazing history.
When I read and understood the contribution to Australia by this small district I was stunned. From the Boer War all the way through to Afghanistan, this has produced some real hero's.
Well worth a stop to read, understand and contemplate how much we owe our veterans.Written 21 November 2023
- We took a small bus load of elderly clients for a trip out to El Dorado recently and everyone had a great time. The gardens were beautiful, filled with shady trees and nice little areas hidden away. The place is filled with history and the homestead and garden look great.
The food was the real treat, scones with jam and cream as well as sandwiches, quiche, slice and cake. We were so well fed we didn't want to get up to hop back on the bus.
Everyone was also happy to see some of the livestock and talk to the house animals.Written 12 October 2016
- Plenty to see with playground for kids.
We visited late afternoon and they restarted the coffee machine just for us! Very friendly staff🙂Written 10 June 2019
- If you plan your walk you can easily fit most of the sights in - in an early morning walk - ie cooler. Baobab Tree, Memorial Street, church etc etc.Written 24 September 2021
- Great easy walk around a lovely bush setting. Plenty of birds to be seen for bird watchers and non bird watchers. Other wildlife as well if you keep your eyes peeled. Very peacefulWritten 26 November 2023
- 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.Written 7 September 2021
