THE MIN MIN LIGHT

Welcome to the land of the Min Min Light

Traveller, your path ahead beholds one of Australia’s greatest unsolved supernatural mysteries.

*Cue the other worldly background music…

According to folklore, the Min Min Lights sometimes follow or approach people and then disappear, sometimes very rapidly, only to reappear later.

“I couldn’t believe my eyes as I watched it hovering over the graveyard.

I broke into a cold sweat as it started coming toward me.”

Feeling your pulse quicken and a need to hear more?

Read the rest of the yarn on the Outback Queensland tourism website.  

Min Min is actually the name of a locality between Boulia and Winton and it lends the light its name because a stockman saw the strange light there back in 1918. While Min Min Light sightings have increased since European settlement, earlier Aboriginal history too tells a legend of mysterious lights.

The Min Min Encounter Complex in Boulia has a must see show and promises to reel you deeper into the mystery of the light.

“It was fantastic! A little scary for the kids but they still enjoyed it! The kids have been looking for the Min Min light (unexplained light that follows/chases people out here in this area – people have various theories – mineral gases being released, emu’s who have rolled in phosphorous gas, ghosts from the ‘seedy’ Min Min hotel that burned down etc, etc).

It was a 45minute show that had you walking from little room to little room, while people (talking dummies) told stories about the Min Min light – really great! We loved our time in Boulia…”
