With more Australian families deciding to celebrate Halloween each year, there are now so many spooky events for kids that it's hard to choose what to do!
We've put together a list of our favourite events happening all across Sydney this weekend and on October 31st.
1) Trick or treating
There are certain suburbs in Sydney that really get into the spirit of Halloween for the local kids.
Hastings Parade in Bondi is known for going all out with decorations.
Annandale has lots of people who like to participate on Railway Parade, Trafalgar Street and Nelson Street.
St Ives Chase attracts lots of kids at Warrimoo and Gould Avenues.
East Lindfield's Middle Harbour Road also has plenty of houses that open their doors to kids for lollies.
Carawatha Street in Beecroft has some great houses that welcome trick or treaters
Holly Street in Rouse Hill has been a popular street to visit in the past few years.
The Campbelltown Haunted House at Orlick Ave, Ambarvale is spectacular and it's held to raise money for The Starlight Foundation. They have lots of kid friendly activities that are fun without being too scary.
However, these suburbs can become inundated with people so you might prefer to attend one of the public trick or treating trails below, which provide kids with a map to hunt for treats, plus other activities, such as games and scary characters. Some of these are free, and some of them require a small entry fee and a booking to be made.
It is never too late to enrol your child in a Learn to Swim program at your local City of Sydney aquatic centre. With 5 locations available, there is sure to be one that is convenient for all Sydney residents.
Are your children interested in virtual reality, design and coding or artificial intelligence? If so, they will LOVE learning more at a Australian Immersive Education Academy (AIEA) summer school holiday workshop.
Do you want to learn how to knit? Or have recently started and would like to meet some new friends to share your creativity with, all while having a good chat? Sydney Knitting Club has classes for you.
There is no better place for children and teens to let their imaginations run wild these school holidays, than the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA), which has holiday programs on offer throughout Sydney.
