Roma is known as the cradle of Australia's oil and gas industry and is a fitting location for the recently opened oil and gas museum. Roma was the very first site where oil and gas was discovered in Australia. This museum is a living memorial to the industry, where you will find yourself intrigued by the collection of stories, photographs, facts and objects presented in the variety of fascinating multi media exhibits. With something for all ages, the museum will take you on an absorbing journey from Australia's first discovery of petroleum, through the boom and bust years of oil and gas exploration and on to today's multi billion dollar industry.
