Roma itself is located in the western Darling Downs area of Queensland, Australia, 515 km (318 miles) by rail WNW of Brisbane. It is the centre of a rich pastoral and wheat-growing district and the town styles itself as the capital of the Western Downs. Bore water for the town is obtained from an Artesian Basin but many homes have a tank for rainwater delivered by a third tap at the kitchen sink as the town water has a strong taste.
