    Best trick or treating in Brisbane is in Wilston on Munna St./Edmonstone St. Based on 2018, most houses give out candy, one house does a full on haunted house and another does spectacular decorations and Halloween themed entertainment. Lots of trick or treaters, costumes and fun. Definitely worth a look.
