UPDATED FOR 2018: 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 2018 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.
Please respect the residents of these homes who put so much effort into making incredible displays that everyone can enjoy – it is important to show respect and not ruin anyone’s fun.
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!)
- Respect the displays and do not over-crowd (particularly if you have traveled to another suburb)
- SAY THANK YOU!
