Halloween Brisbane – Where to Trick or Treat Near Brisbane!

It’s Halloween! Where to Trick or Treat in Brisbane!

Looking for the BEST in haunted houses and trick or treat experiences in Brisbane? Try these venues in 2017 but remember if you plan to take the kids ‘out of your local area’ you may like to consider taking some ‘treats’ to replenish the supplies of the houses you visit. It can get busy in the popular areas.

Looking for a “safe place” to take your kids trick or treating in Brisbane?  You don’t have to be of Scottish heritage (or US for that matter) to enjoy a few spooky Halloween activities and some trick or treating here in Brisbane. There are plenty of Halloween street parties in Brisbane for kids who love a little dress up and a little scary fun!

Trick or treating tips:

  • Note that Trick or Treating usually starts around 5 – 5.30pm and finishes by 8pm.
  • Tricking is not really done in Australia, so don’t let little ones think they’ll be toilet papering a house!
  • Never let a child go alone.  Stay with your child at all times and inspect all treats before they eat.  All Halloween sweets should be sealed.  Don’t let kids eat anything from a broken package.
  • Take bottled water and limit how many treats kids can eat lest they become sick before the street party is finished.  Make a deal BEFORE you go on how many treats are up for grabs on the night!
  • Eat some good food before you go!
  • Be cautious on roads.  Although the street parties we’ve listed are pretty well known, local drivers may not be aware.
  • If you’re going trick or treating in your own street, keep in mind that not everyone is keen!  Stick to the neighbours you know or opt for an organised street party!
  • Treat buckets fill fast and sweets will be decanted into your handbag!  Take a bag for each child as you’ll be carrying their stuff (as always!)

    OMG this is the best article ever

  2. Emma says:

    Do you know of any around Ipswich? We’ve been looking for something to do!

  3. Kerri says:

    The Nudgee one isn’t just Overlea street. It’s really big. Hundreds of kids and other streets nearby get involved too. We go there every year.

  4. Erica says:

    Um, since when was Brisbane in America? We’re not going because we’re Aussie!

    • TAC says:

      It’s actually an old Scottish tradition. The US loves it, that’s true. We love it too because it’s just the best way to bring neighbours together and kids love scary stuff!

    • debbie says:

      Ummm…. you dont have to be a grouch some people actually enjoy it unlike you oh and how about you SUCK IT UP and just leave.

    • Kim says:

      Halloween is fun and it’s not American. It’s been commercialised by them but traditionally comes from many cultures- Celtic, Mexican, etc. kids love dressing up and getting free candy. Should Christmas be shelved too because that’s not technically Aussie either in origin.

  5. Kristy_Smitty says:

    There’s a really great one near Springfield Lakes. I’ll look it up and post here.

  6. Cheryl_Antony says:

    Any around Burpengary?

  7. Debbie says:

  13. Sheina says:

    Is there a list for 2016 Halloween active yet? I’d love to add my house to the list. My sister and I are Halloween nuts and each year we go bonkers trying to build a great place for kids (and adults) We’ll be hosting trick or treating Sat, Sun and Mon night this year.

  14. Dean says:

  15. Steph Beames says:

    This is a wonderful list! Thank you!!! Are you updating for 2016?

    • Janine says:

  16. Rabey says:

    what is the absolue BEST suburb?? is it like around kalinga park??

    • Janine says:

      That depends on what you determine as the BEST! 😉 It’s a bit like Christmas lights – you just have to go and look and see which streets YOU like the best! 🙂

  17. Jess says:

    Hey, does anyone know when these are? (Halloween is on a Monday this year so I was just wondering if these events were on the weekend)

    • Janine says:

      I believe the trick or treating (dressing up and visiting your neighbours) will be happening on Monday night – yes a school night!

  18. Kylie says:

    Same here Jess, wondering if this year trick or treating would happen on Saturday the 29th, as the 31st is a school night? Maybe (probably) I’m a bit of a square ?

  19. Amanda says:

    Wow what a fantastic list.

  20. Rae & Kyl says:

    If you’re not scared of blood and you’re brave enough to ring the bell, there will be candy, if you can get past the alien from hell at 93 Zillmere Road, Boondall

    Does anyone have a suggestion for the best spot for a two year old? Nothing too scary just a chance to trick or treat and have some fun dressed up? We’re around Chermside Thanks 🙂

  27. Kat says:

    Thanks so much for this awesome list. We are in the Sunshine Coast so I will update you as to how we go on Monday. I did notice though that Pacific Paradise doesn’t habe a Brando st, do u maybe mean Bando st? And Tallowood Drive is in Kuluin, not in Brightwater. Can you please confirm these with me so I know where to try? Thanks. Otherwise I might pop down to Beerwah instead 🙂
    The others around Brisbane, Scarborough and Shorncliffe sound great too, might try them out other years. Cheers

    • Erin says:

      I’m also on the Sunny Coast looking for safe areas to take my 8 and 5 year old. As I’m in Buderim, Kuluin definitely sounds like the best option. I know that last year there was a Facebook group that listed participating streets that you could join (it was a closed group so best to start looking early). Good Luck!

  28. Madeline says:

    We go all out at our place – Top of Delaney Circuit CARINDALE

  29. We are doing trick or treat for the seventh year running in Hayward St Paddington (and cross streets). We are also running a walk through haunted house in our garage!
