"Have you seen the Light?"

Visit the Min Min Encounter where you will meet eccentric true blue Aussie 'characters' such as Bluey, Mrs McGreal and more who will enthrall you with their stories of the mysterious min min lights.

These unexplained balls of glowing light have appeared to travellers for decades with the first recorded sighting at a lonely Cobb and Co staging site in the Boulia Shire. 

Is it legend, myth, real? Well we are here to tell you and so will the residents and many visitors to the Shire over the years that they are not fanciful tales after a few rums but unexplained and possibly will always remain so.

So come and discover them for yourself but remember you don't find the light it finds you!
