The Best of Queensland Experiences Program is being developed by Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ), in partnership with Outback Queensland Tourism Association and aims to promote those businesses who offer high-quality visitor experiences. In order to be named in the new promotion businesses must meet stringent customer-driven criteria, and with only one more assessment period remaining both Roma Central Motel and BOOBOOK Ecotours are on track to be recognised and rewarded for their exceptional customer service.

BOOBOOK Ecotours was established on the strength of twenty years’ ecological experience in the Roma and Carnarvon Range areas and offers visitors exclusive access to over 70,000 acres of outback wilderness. Tour activities range from explorations of the coal seam gas and agricultural industries to Indigenous rock art and stunning wildflowers, and the chance to participate in ecological expeditions. The first one of these will be run in 2019 and you have a chance to jump on it for FREE. This eco-expedition is worth over $3000 and you can enter to win by completing a 1 minute survey here.

“With our interest in the natural environment and our knowledge of the area we’ve recognised for a long time the great possibilities for guided tours off the beaten track,” BOOBOOK business manager Meryl Eddie says, “and two years ago we branched into ecotourism to share our knowledge. The Roma region has so much tourism potential all within an hour’s flight from Brisbane and we look forward to putting this region on the tourist bucket list.”


Roma Central Motel is a brand new contemporary motel in the heart of Roma and is run by Charlie and Helen Eames who recognise the value of business collaboration as they work together towards Best of Queensland Experiences accreditation. “By working with a very professional company like BOOBOOK we know we can add to our guest stay by offering a unique visitor experience with one of BOOBOOK’s amazing tours,” Charlie says. “With our four star quality accommodation we value add to BOOBOOK tours by being able to provide a whole package for our visitors to the region.”
