Minjungbal museum is easy to find. Well signposted just before Tweed City shopping Mall. The grounds surrounding the museum are lovely and restful with several picnic tables and lots of tall trees. Easy parking in a large car park.

Mingjungal Museum


Initially, I thought the museum was not open, but I heard footsteps and knocked. I quickly found out why it was shut. The sandflies and mosquitos were everywhere; the worst I had ever experienced. So wear protective clothing and take insect repellent with you because after you have viewed the museum, you will want to take the walks, especially to the Borra ring. Sadly I was not prepared so did not get to go.

I was greeted by a lovely young girl who took my money ($7.50 for seniors) She showed me into the entry room where we had a chat before I viewed several beautiful Aboriginal paintings. From there, I proceeded into the museum area. Their displays were well set out with relevant information. I found it all very interesting. It is forbidden to take photos inside the museum area as all the people on display are now dead.
