2023 Cairns Halloween Guide

Your guide to FAMILY Halloween events, parties and Trick or Treat in Cairns!

Here are some of the events that are happening in Cairns for Halloween 2023.

Scroll all the way to the bottom for Trick or Treat info 

Tuesday 31st - Featured Halloween Events

Tunnel of Terror - Mary Parker Drive Redlynch

MONDAY 31st at 4 – 7.30pm.

Come along and see if you are brave enough to enter the Tunnel…….
We will have a Sausage Sizzle, Fairy Floss, Face Painting and some other cool stuff.

Good to Know:  We went here last year (Saturday Night then) and it was really good, so many families, great atmosphere! However this also meant that all the local houses were slammed with kids and many had run out of TREATS very early on, like by 6-7pm.  Our advice is come early then go elsewhere for more trick and treat (or if you don’t want your kids to have too many chocolates or sweets then come later lol).
