Information

The town of Boulia is the pivotal point of the far west, with Mount Isa 300 kilometres to the north and Winton 370 kilometres to the east. It is linked to Alice Springs via the Donohue Highway and the town is acknowledged as being the Capital of the Channel Country, which gives rise to the great rivers that flow west to Lake Eyre.

Things to do in Boulia's include the Min Min lights tour. No-one seems to know just exactly what the phenomenon is but there have been sightings of these mysterious Min Min lights for nearly a century and even sceptics are convinced that the phenomenon really exists. The Min Min lights first appeared near the site of the old Min Min Hotel which is located 73 km east of the town at the junction of the roads from McKinlay and Winton. The old hotel is now little more than a ruin although the bottles and the nearby graveyard are a reminder that it obviously had a colourful past.
