Boulia

Boulia is one of the westernmost towns in Queensland.

Deep in the outback of Queensland, this small town is home for about 300 people.


Surrounded by some beautiful red soils, and mostly known for Min Min lights.

While the mysterious Min Min Lights have been reported in a lot of places in western Queensland and New South Wales, Boulia took the step to turn the phenomenon to tourist dollars and built the Min Min Encounter where you can learn all about the lights. This is also the town's tourist information centre.

Another thing to see is the Stonehouse Museum - an old cottage with some old memorabilia, outback signs and even dinosaur fossils. There are also some other cute old buildings such as a tiny butchery, laundromat and the smallest RSL club I have ever seen.

There is the old pub, Australia Hotel, and there is also a caravan park. And there is a lot of empty land around the town to camp in the bush, in case you want to have a chance to see the lights.
