The Roma Saleyards is the largest cattle selling centre in Australia, with 220,676 cattle sold through the yards in the 2021/22 financial year.

The saleyards, which are known for their record breaking sales, are the number one choice for many graziers in Queensland, New South Wales and the Northern Territory.

Auctions are conducted every Tuesday commencing at 8am, with special sales such as Bull Sales, Herd Dispersal Sales and Special Breed Sales held according to demand.

  • ​The saleyards and the beef industry itself are entrenched in Roma’s history and play a key part in the region’s economic growth.

    The Roma Saleyards Master Plan has been developed with a view to creating a thriving hub of business opportunities and to ‘value add’ to the Saleyards precinct.

    The Roma Saleyards delivers huge economic benefits to the region and provides easy access to services for rural producers. 

  • The three-bay Roma Saleyards Truck Wash Facility is an important feature of the saleyards, catering for approximately four times the previous customer throughput, by providing additional wash bays.

    The design has improved functionality and reduced waiting periods by up to an hour. The facility also reduces the overall quantity of bore water used in the washing process, improves the quality of the discharge and recycles/re-uses the treated discharge.

    Designed by Struxi and built by local builders SM and KA Duff, the truck wash was completed in 2015 and has been operating with encouraging reviews ever since.

    This project was funded by Maranoa Regional Council ($1 million), the State's Royalties for the Regions program ($1.5 million) and Santos GLNG ($500,000).

    Maranoa Regional Council's Roma Saleyards Truck Wash was named a state winner at the 2016 Building Design Association Queensland (BDAQ) Awards.

    Winning in the category for Best Special Project, the truck wash received accolades from some of the industry's best designers.​
