Halloween events in Cairns for 2021

With Halloween falling on a Sunday this year, it’s turning out to be an all weekend event in Cairns, with many activities planned over the entire weekend.  

Here is some of what is happening in Cairns for Halloween 2021

For Trick and Treat friendly houses and suburbs we recommend checking out the Halloween in Cairns, Atherton Tablelands and FNQ Facebook page.

Pakmag, well known for their amazing Halloween Parties, are having the Pakmag Spooky Sepctacular at Sugarworld on Friday evening, however you need to Win your way there, due to Covid restrictions.
