With just 3 days until Halloween, West Bremer Radio is here to let you in on the best Halloween haunts, lights, scares and parties to get you revved up for the big night.
Ipswich boasts a fabulous community haunted house at 525 Junction Rd Barellan Point. This year they’re going Covid-safe and switching their walkthrough for some driveby scares. A truly frightful experience, it’s fun for everyone at the Halloween Haunt Ipswich, running each evening from the 28th of October. Monsters on Mahogany, 36 Mahogany St, Ipswich, is another fabulous Halloween walkthrough available on the 30th and 31st of October that will have monsters young and old quaking in their boots. A few more haunted displays include 85 High Street, Blackstone, 8 Bloodwood Place, Redbank, and 1 Bottomley st, Brassall.

You can also visit Riverlink Shopping Centre for the little ones to get crafty with skull sand art and spider lollipops, visit Caspar the friendly ghost or knock on a zombie’s door.
To get into the creepy mood, visit Old Ipswich Cemetery for a ghost tour! It’s a historic ghost tour, led by an eerie tour guide, the 2-hour trip boasts 13 terrifying ghost stories, as you walk among forgotten graves haunted by diggers and bush rangers and even moving statues. Spine tingling.
If those aren’t scary enough for you, try out a Seraphim Escape Room – The Executioner’s Tool Shed traps you in a literal horror movie and you’ll be fighting for your life to escape… before time runs out.
