Welcome to Boulia
The most famous residents of Boulia are the mysterious min-min lights, a supposedly natural phenomenon that occurs when the temperature plummets after dark, and erratic lights appear on the unusually flat horizon. They’re out there, perhaps, or at least there’s sci-fi animatronic gadgetry and eerie lighting in an hourly ‘alien’ show at the Min Min Encounter. Doubling as the information centre, this is classic travel kitsch.
The Stone House Museum has sheds full of outback stuff, space junk, local history, Aboriginal artefacts and the preserved 1888 home of the pioneering Jones family.
