    The Big Nut & Bolt - Roma

    July 5, 1991 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Following Landsborouh highway then at Moven it turns into Warrego highway, from there another 2 hours and plenty of roadworks to Roma, the main town in the Western Downs region.

    The "Big Bolt & Nut" are not easy to spot, I knew roughly where they were using the address in Wikipedia and driving at 40kph. The big thing is located outside Banks bolt & fasteners, just inside their fence.Read more

    The Big Rig - Roma

    July 6, 1991 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    This is one of the most popular "Big Thing" and it is being looked after. It is an icon in Roma and is part of a Night Show where Oil & Gas exploration in the area from the early beginnings is explained. Unfortunately I was too tired after driving 7 hours from Barcaldine that I missed the show.

    The Big Rig is located adjacent the information centre close to the Eastern end of town, hard to be missed.
