THE NIGHT SHOW An educational and entertaining way to spend the best part...

THE NIGHT SHOW An educational and entertaining way to spend the best part of 35 minutes, during which you will get to understand the events of the first 60 years or so of the 20th Century, which justify Roma's claim to being the Cradle of Australia's Oil and Gas Industry. The visitor is accommodated on open-air bench seating, plus some chairs, and is presented with an open-air set, depicting a rather basic tent camp typical of oil drilling during the 1920's. The set comprises of three tents, two small drilling rigs and the type of "junk" normally seen around a rig of that era. A large projection screen is raised behind the set, and one of the tents serves as a second screen. Commentary is heard throughout the Show, backed up by images on the two screens. Unexpected lighting effects occur during the Show, in appropriate passages of the commentary. Visitors are encouraged to take photographs if they desire. All in all, the viewer departs with a fair understanding of oil drilling activities in the Roma area, particularly during the Oil Boom Era of the late 1920's. Returning patrons will realize that the Night Show was THE OIL PATCH Oil Patch is an outside display of oil and gas exploration and product equipment, explained by suitable signs and audio panels. these facilities allow the Oil patch to be a self-guided experience. The old patch is well landscaped with vegetation suited to Roma's rather dry climate. It has proved to be an oasis to many birds, having come in from the bush during recent extended drought. A theatre with the Oil Patch shows a video about how the old and gas has recently changed Roma. Also explains the extraction of natural gas and coal seem gas. The visitor will probably need over an hour to meander through the oil patch. if you need to come back into the cafe for a break before completing the circuit, please do so. The big features of the oil patch are the 1929 vintage steam powered Emsco drilling rig and a somewhat more modern early 1950's diesel powered National T32 rig. The T32 was very well known locally, and served to train a generation of roughnecks. The Emsco was brought to Roma by the Roma Oil Company, drilled four holes, and was abandoned on its last site in 1941. While, for safety reasons, climbing on the exhibits is generally not permitted, steps and safety rails have been built onto the floor of the Emsco rig to allow the visitor to appreciate the sixe of the equipment. By viewing the Oil patch, the visitor leaves with a reasonable understanding of the history and technology in use during the 20th Century, as regards oil search in the Roma District.

Not only is this page an information place but also a meeting place to have a meal or coffee. There are plenty of souvenirs and it would appear some local artists etc have their goods on display. The interior is clean and the staff helpful and friendly.

Myself and my 3 children aged 11,14,15 visited in January, took advise from others and went latter in the day. Great, because the exhibit is mostly outdoors. For $12 adults, $7 children, you get a self guided tour. My family loved the interactive displays, unfortunately we believe there isn't enough of these. Early in the tour all are static and... 更多

It was 38 degrees when we visited. Pretty much all the exhibits are outside so we flew thru them because we were literally roasting in the heat. However the content and set up were good. Gives a run thru of the natural gas history around the Roma area. Explains how natural gas is created and shows examples of machinery used...drilling... 更多

We visited here as my husband is a rig worker and he thought it would be interesting for me. He was right. Well presented and easy to understand presentations plus ex working rigs etc. The restaurant and gift shop are excellent too.

Was interested to read other reviews and the amount of bad comments about the not so good customer service. I thought surely not but it is correct there is no customer service and for a centre that clearly does not get a lot of patronage one would think they would work on having exceptional customer service... not so Walk away... 更多

We visited the centre late in the day and were the only visitors going through at that time. This was fortunate as there are a lot of interactive displays and we were able to go at our own pace. It is very informative about the history of oil and gas exploration in the Roma region. Staff are very friendly and... 更多

Recently stopped by the Big Rig but was let down immediately upon arrival. Apparently the display closes at 4 PM daily despite it still being full sunlight for at least another hour & a half & there being a "night show" running after that. The fact that its limited opening hours are not well advertised seems to be just to... 更多

Very interesting display on the history of oil in the Roma region. You will have to allow a good hour to read all the displays. Well set out. Staff very helpful.

We viewed The Big Rig night show and the self-guided Big Rig day tour. Both were very interesting, but of course, repeated similar information. The day tour has more detail. If you are seeing both, make sure you buy a combo-ticket to save a few dollars. For what The Big Rig is, the price may seem a little steep to... 更多
