210619: Ironbark Raceway – Drags – 19th June – Show and Shine, Car Boot Sale and Swap Meet

Drags 19th JuneSWDRA Drags
 The South West Drag Racing Association (SWDRA) was formed in early 1994. In the following years the SWDRA held drag meetings at Mitchell, Surat and Roma Airports, as well as Linton St, Tiffin St and Barnard Road in Roma with a view to building an 1/8 mile track of its own. After years of hard work and fund raising, a track has been built, Ironbark Raceway, located 10 kilometres east of Roma.
Ironbark Raceway was built largely by a group of local drag racing enthusiasts with the support of local council, businesses and oil and gas exploration companies, an impressive achievement for a community of 6,500 people. The Queensland Government has also contributed $90,000 towards the build.
The drag strip includes a half mile run off, a return road and staging lanes. The raceway features a control tower equipped with computers, public address system and computerised starting lights and has excellent viewing from a huge spectator mound. There is also a Canteen and Bar onsite, Camping & Showers available for Competitors and Crew.


Where an event has commenced, no money will be refunded if the event has ceased due to adverse weather conditions or any circumstances beyond the reasonable control of Ironbark Raceway.

210625: Are You Lonesome Tonight – Opera Qld – The Roma Saleyards – 25th June

Are You Lonesome Tonight
Opera Queensland’s genre-crossing new production, Are You Lonesome Tonight, will visit The Roma Saleyards on 25 June 2021 as part of a seven-week tour of regional and remote Queensland.
Are You Lonesome Tonight weaves a story about life on the road through the arias of composers such as Puccini and Verdi and songs by Slim Dusty and Dolly Parton, directed by Laura Hansford alongside designer Penny Challen, the star studded cast includes Irena Lysiuk, Marcus Corowa and Jonathan Hickey.
The evening will deliver a cabaret-style performance, exploring the extraordinary qualities and similarities of Opera and Country Music with complimentary champagne on arrival, followed by canapés at interval and a licensed bar.
Are You Lonesome Tonight Director Laura Hansford said the tour is equal parts a celebration of opera and of country tunes, forming a creative and eclectic ensemble of iconic music.
“Our premise for Are You Lonesome Tonight is to just play good music, no matter where that sits or where it comes from. Good music doesn’t belong to a genre, it belongs to the people and the landscapes that we will be embracing wholeheartedly when we perform to audiences across Queensland.”
The state-wide tour was made possible through a partnership with Beef Australia and continues Opera Queensland’s deep commitment to regional audiences.
Opera Queensland Director of Learning, Regional and Community Mark Taylor says the company looks forward to engaging with audiences in Roma.
“Pairing opera and country music is not a gimmick; the two genres have a great deal in common. “Artists, composers and librettists across both artforms understand the power of storytelling and share many common themes of profound love, heartache and triumph in the face of adversity, It’s said country music is about lovin’, fightin’, drinkin’ and cussin’ and aside from the cussin’, that nicely sums up opera too.”
Are You Lonesome Tonight will perform in The Roma Saleyards as well as some of Queensland’s most iconic locations including Longreach’s Australian Stockmans Hall of Fame, Winton’s Waltzing Matilda Centre and the try-line of Townsville’s new 25,000- capacity Queensland Country Bank Stadium.
Mayor Tyson Golder is thrilled to welcome back Queensland Opera to the region for another spectacular evening.
The night will begin with a licensed bar opening from 5.30pm and guests will be seated by 6.15pm for the show to start at 6:30pm. The show will run for approximately 95 minutes with a 20 minute intermission.
Ticket pricing is as follows:
• $45 per Adult • $30 for Seniors • $30 for Under 18s • $120 for family of 4 (two adults and two children under 18).
Council encourages residents to get in quick and secure their tickets for this event. Tickets available via the following link
