"Have a Min Min Encounter" Boulia Things to Do Tip by wise23girl
Boulia Things to Do: 3 reviews and 4 photos
Well if you do not see the real thing you can experience a Min Min Encouter.....about 45 minutes of displays and wizz lighting and hear the story of these mysterious lights.
The lights are named after the Min Min hotel in Boulia that burnt down in 1918 ( I think the old original hotel was actually closer to Middleton but those few miles do not count out here!). Soon after the fire a stockman was followed by a light on his journey to Boulia.
The lights were actually first spotted in 1912 and the locals swear they still appear from time to time. But a newly created legend says you need " a left handed screwdriver and maybe a population tool" if you are to see the real thing.
Maybe the Aboriginal folk(the Pitta Pitta people) knew of them long before the white man first saw the lights..
