Brisbane Zombie Walk

The living dead will take a casual stroll, dragging their legs and searching for brains in the Brisbane Zombie Walk.

Put on your worst dress, slip on some fake scabs and douse yourself in fake blood because zombies will rule the city streets on Sunday October 25.

As crazy as it sounds, this isn’t the first of its kind. Zombie walks have been around since 2001 and occur all over the world, the Toronto Zombie Walk is one of the biggest.

Just remember that zombies aren’t immune to society’s rules. According to the organisers:

“The first rule is to have fun! But aside from that using common sense is the most important rule. Zombies are not immune from traffic so keep off the roads unless crossing at a pedestrian crossing while safe to do so. Observe and respect other zombies' personal space (likewise with the uninfected and uninformed masses who will undoubtedly be drawn to the walk for photos etc.”

As disgusting and disorganised as their film counterparts seem to be, these zombie has a route planned out. The zombies will converge at Roma Street Parklands and will continue into the city centre then out to Fortitude Valley. The walk is expected to take an hour, but can differ depending on how good your zombie-limp is.

Following the walk there will be a secret after party with entertainment planned at Birdee Num Num’s. Entry on the night will be a gold coin donation and it’s a licensed venue so you need to be 18 to get in.

As ironic as it will be they will raise money for the The Brain Foundation. Finally, the zombies are giving back to the brain after taking so much…literally.

Appearance is everything for a zombie. Websites like Zombie Pub Crawl, Zombie Maker or Terror 4 Fun are great starting points. If you have no idea what kind of zombie you want to go as, check out this zombie classification system.

If you want to socialise with your fellow zombies before the gathering, check out the Australian forum.
