Halloween also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows or All Saints' Eve is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31st October. According to history, All Hallows' Eve is a Christianised feast initially influenced by Celtic harvest festivals with possible pagan roots.

Reapers, Ghosts and Skeltons await you at The Haunted Ranch

This year Halloween falls on a Saturday and for a gold coin entry guests are invited to attend the premier authentic American Halloween home haunt experience at The Haunted Ranch. The gold coin entry proceeds will be donated to Rare Cancers Australia Sick or Treat Program.

Rare Cancers Australia is a charity whose purpose is to improve awareness, support and treatment for Australians with rare and less common cancers. Each year there are over 44,000 diagnoses and 24,000 deaths due to rare cancers. A list of these rare cancers can be found on their website. You will be surprised to know the different types of cancers that anyone of us can endure.

After a holiday in Los Angeles some years ago, the Horton Family decided to bring some of the Halloween spirit back to Brisbane and The Haunted Ranch was born in 2008 as a small display. Growing in strength from year to year, the event is now fully themed in detail and scale and includes a cemetery with over 100 items ranging from small jack-o-lanterns, life size static, and animatronic props such as reapers, ghosts, skeletons and jumping spiders. Special effects of holographic projections and low lying fog machines along with custom made fencing and tombstones are all part of the reality at The Haunted Ranch.

The 'Scary Area' or for those who are brave

The event is suitable for the whole family; however it is encouraged for small children to visit the display before dark. A dedicated "scary area" is set aside for older kids and brave souls. In the event of wet weather only a small amount of the display will be installed due to safety concerns. Time for the event is from 4.00pm to 9.00pm.
