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!

    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:

    https://www.facebook.com/Blackwood-street-Halloween-Festival-2015-415753228629423/?ref=ts

  8. TAC says:

    Added Debbie THanks!

  9. Emily says:

    Wooloowin gets behind it, streets such as Henry St, Nelson St, Emma St & Park Ave

  10. TAC says:

    Thanks Emily! Added!

  11. gale says:

    Parkland CRT boondall off Muller road is giving out candy, check it out.

  12. Meg says:

    Hi this may be a odd question but is it happening Monday Oct 31st?

  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:

    We will be having another Haunted House in Lendon st, Deagon this year!

  15. Steph Beames says:

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

    • Janine says:

      Yes we are doing that at the moment, updated as new places come to us to ask to be included.

  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

  21. eleanor says:

    Kensington ave, seven hills brisbane

  22. M-A says:

    Hi there, you’ve listed Mortlake Road & Oxford Street but I can’t seem to find any of these on the Interweb. Can you tell me what time etc or do you have organiser details? Thanks

  23. M-A says:

  26. Jess says:

    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:

    Hi
    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!

    25 Kentwood Drive, Bray Park (not far from Gum Street, Warner which is already on the list if you’re heading there/in the area).
    I have quite a big set up in the front yard (Graveyard, and a zombie display), please come to have a look and enjoy! Trick or Treaters won’t be disappointed!

  50. Tracey says:

    Could you pls add my house to ur trick or treat house list. 24 Mungala Street Rochedale south. Thank you ?????????

    • Maria says:

      Hi Tracey, do you if any of your neighbors or surrounding streets are giving out candy as well?

  51. amy says:

    hope I’m not to late 🙁 can you also add 9 Leanne street marsden for treats? 🙂 the setup is nothing fancy though

  52. Susan says:

    Is there any streets in Runcorn/Runcorn Heights participating. Would love to go around with my toddler.

  53. Peter Holyoake says:

    I should’ve everyone’s our place in here earlier, we have a great haunt in Bulimba on Smallman Street
    We have;
    Cemetery, 8m spider web, skeletons, awesome pumpkin carvings (this year was Chucky, Freddy Krueger, Beetlejuice and Pennywise), dead dolls, mowing accident, lots of various skulls and bones, hung hession skulls, skull garden torches, lots of webs, chains, spiders and an awesome spooky lighting and audio display.
    It’s been growing last few years and this years fame attraction was a creepy clown jack in the box almost 4’ high.

    We love sharing with the kids and parents and it’s one street from Bulimba’s Hocus Pocus.

  54. Charlene says:

    If you’re in the Wilston/Newmarket/Windsor area, try the Munna Street/Edmonstone area in Wilston. A couple houses do a full on haunted house, several others do some decorations and the majority of the houses participate with candy/etc. It’s near large parks and has a few dead end streets so there’s not a ton of through traffic making it a little safer for the kids.

  55. Yoshi says:

    Hi, I’d like to know when is the Moorooka street party held. There’s no mention of dates above and not sure if trick or treating would happen midweek on a Wednesday which is the actual Halloween day? Cheers

  56. Nadia says:

    Yes. Every year at 9 Hindmarsh Court. I know this post was from last year but I thought I’d let you know. You won’t be disappointed.

  57. James says:

    Riverview Place at Yeronga is a big event. Almost every house in the street takes part with decorated houses and scary dungeons set up in front yards.. Scary…

  58. angela says:

    can anyone give me their adress i have 2 10 yr old twins desperate for some candy!

  59. malli says:

    tracey, your house at 24 Mungala Street Rochedale south looks amazing hit us up

  60. Amy Richards says:

    I am wondering what time the haunted house at imbros street in nundah starts and finishes for the littlies and what time it then reopens for the adults…

  61. Jesika says:

    17 Rowell Street, zillmere
    Will be handing out candy.

  62. Jenna says:

    11 Corypha Cresent, Calamvale
    Prepared to be spooked

  63. Shane says:

    Sorry 17 Rowell street will not be participating tonight.

  64. Rebecca says:

    Thank you very much for the tip on Munna Street in Wilston. We went this past Halloween with the kids and it was easily the best Halloween we’ve seen in Brisbane. Dozens of houses gave out candy and as the comment noted, there was a full on haunted house, another house had life size animated phantoms and skeletons and there were literally hundreds of kids dressed up and trick or treating. It was amazing.
