Just what happens at the saleyards after the sun goes down?
There may be no cattle, no calling and no pesky flies…but there will be plenty of activity.
This Easter weekend the inaugural Outback Tucker Under the Stars Dinner is a chance to dust off your boots and enjoy the view from above…the saleyards that is.
The event kicks off the Easter in the Country celebrations on Thursday 24 March at 6pm and gives diners the unique opportunity to experience the iconic saleyards like never before.
Guests have a chance to sip cocktails on the rails while taking in the panoramic views at sunset.
Then a meal that showcases the tastes of the Maranoa and what we do best; including lamb, beef and wheat.
Ann Somers, organiser for the Easter in the Country says the night is a great way to showcase the region to locals and visitors alike.
“It’s a proper real taste of the country that you won’t get anywhere else,” Ms Somers said.
“I think that’s the beauty of it because it’s so uniquely Australian and there are very few places that you would be able to experience it.”
Throughout the evening guests will also be able to learn more about local produce, including a special demonstration about beer.
“There will be different types of yeast and you can smell it and it’s a bit like a wine tasting but for beer,” Ms Somers said.
There will also be a mock bull auction that will show guests just what goes on at the Roma Saleyards.
Tickets are still on sale for $40 and can be purchased at www.easterinthecountryroma.com.au or at The Big Rig.
