After a relaxing night at the Imperial Hotel in Bingara we were ready for another day of adventure and some more touring. Today’s travel would see us arrive at our destination in Roma, Queensland. Our journey was drawing towards an end and there was still more to see and do, Our stops today would include:

The old rail line is a reminder when rail was “king” and a vital lifeline to rural communities. This bridge was located at Ezzy’s Crossing and was part of the closed Moree to Inverell line. The bridge dates back to 1901.

From Gravesend it was a uneventful drive up to Moree and then on to Thallon. 

 The pub’s license was issued in 1864, it was  previously the shearer’s accommodation for the Nindigully Station. From the late 1800s it was also a Cobb and Co coach change over station.

 Located on the banks of the Moonie River, the pub is a popular place for a drink or 2 as well as a meal. It is also a popular camping spot for travellers.


We had arrived at the pub a little before lunchtime, so a refreshment stop was in order. We sat back and watched the ‘grey nomads’ wander over for lunch and drinks. It certainly was a popular spot the day we visited.

Arriving at our destination in Roma we quickly unpacked and freshened up for a venture to the Queen’s Arms Hotel. Our motel of choice is the Roma Mid Town Motor Inn. Not the cheapest place in town, it is the most convenient for us though.
