The Minions have arrived
The Minion Mulch Trail Festival (27 September - 4 October) celebrates tourism in the Northern Gold Coast region, encouraging an influx of visitors to support local businesses and service providers. The highlight of this annual event, the beloved Mulch Minion Trail, sees an array of Minion-themed mulch sculptures positioned along a designated driving route.
The Minion Mulch Trail begins at Yatala Pie Shop, continues along Exit 38 to Cabbage Tree Point and concludes at Jacob's Well. Minions can be seen in various locations along the journey, often promoting local businesses and coastal activities. Many displays can only be observed whilst driving past, however some offer car parking spaces. Visitors are welcome to leave their vehicles for closer inspection or capturing an Inst-worthy selfie.
Wedding themed display at Harrigan's Irish Drift Inn
A map with a driving route can be accessed here. Alternatively, a number of small directional signs have been erected along the trail.
A new addition to the festival this year is searching for rocks that have been painted like Minions. Hundreds have been hidden at Dungara Park (included on the map). Children are encouraged to re-hide rocks for others to find.
Harrigan's Irish Drift Inn will also offer on-site rock hunting on 27 and 28 September. This venue will conclude the festival by hosting a reptile show and face painting from 12:30-1:30pm, 29-30 September and 1 October.
