The Royal on 99 Roma Cup

Festivals and Celebrations

16 Nov 2018 to 18 Nov 2018

The Roma Cup is western Queensland’s largest and most glamorous race meeting.

Attracting around 8,000 punters from around the state, accommodating them on site at Swag Central or in motels around town, the race meeting and the weekend festivities make it the best weekend that can be had in the bush. All within a half day drive or a one hour flight from the south-east corner.

This is bush racing at it’s finest and most colourful, with a guarantee of country hospitality and a convening of everyone who is anyone from western Queensland looking for action.

The weekend kicks off Friday evening with the Calcutta in town. Saturday race day starts around 11am and is an action-packed day of racing, fashion and socialising. In fact, their race meeting works more effectively than Tinder for introductions and relationship kickstarts. After the races, live music at an after-party that finishes in the wee hours of Sunday morning and a recovery breakfast at Bassett Park sends travellers on their way with a full stomach and some spectacular memories.
