Trick or treat through scavenger hunt in the park
This Halloween take the kids to Centennial Park for some ghoulish family-friendly fun in a safe environment where they can trick or treat and challenge themselves through spooky activity stations.
Dress them up in their favourite scary costume and watch them retrieve frogs from a witches cauldron brew, navigate through a spider's web, feed giant venus fly traps, venture a guess in the Mystery Box and use Nerf guns to battle the dead from rising in the Zombie Graveyard whilst being spooked by swamp monsters along the way.
A trail map will assist them through these eerie areas, with some areas having 'too cute to spook' alternatives for younger children. At the end they will receive a 'Trick or Treat' bag that will contain a hatching dinosaur egg.
Once complete, families can move to the Community Garden and decorate a scarecrow in the pumpkin patch. You will just need to bring some old clothes to fill with straw.
Swamp Monsters is suitable for children aged 5-12 years and costs $17 per child. Start times are available every 15minutes from 10am-12noon and 2pm-4.30pm. Bookings are essential. Children need to be accompanied by an adult. There is no cost for adults.
This is an all weather event so come prepared with raincoat if weather is inclement. Free parking is available in the park and, for those hungry monsters, ice cream and small snacks can be purchased from food vans.
