Min Min Encounter & Boulia Information Centre

In Boulia, the story goes, the light got its name from the old Min Min pub, about 100 kilometres from town, which burnt down around 1917. Some report seeing striking glows rise from the pub’s cemetery, though other stories tell of the lights appearing many decades before the pub was built, and Aboriginal folklore tells of the light originally emanating from an old Aboriginal burial ground, east of town.

Ssshhhh... It's late, it's dark, if you are very quiet, you can hear the embers of the fire crackling as you curl up in your swag. The crickets get louder, every so often you hear a rustling of leaves... What is it? What could it be? You lay back and your gaze is on the spectacular Southern sky, with a million stars sparkling at you, you look for shooting stars and other un-identified flying objects...

Then out of the corner of your eye, you see small bright lights appear and disappear as quickly as a flashing neon sign. The lights appear hovering in front of you, as you move your head to try and see the cause of the light, the light moves with you.

What happened? Where did they go? Are they real or did you just imagine it?
