Rowena was once a stop along the Pokataroo Railway Line, distinguishable by a wheat stack and hotel. Today, while trains carrying wheat and cotton still pass-through town, the station is closed, and all trading is done through the Rowena Pub.
The Pub, is a licensed premises and shop, is a favourite stop for passers-by, with a campground and a handful of rooms. Kids love burning off some energy on the small backyard playground, while mum and dad cosy up by the fire pit when the weather turns cool. Once a year, the community congregates for the Rowena Cracker Night, a fun event for the whole family which draws over a thousand people from around the region.
