Paddington Halloween is a community event for families. It’s a great chance to meet your neighbours!

Paddington Halloween organizes a neighbourhood trick or treat and hosts a home-made haunted house for charity, on the evening of the 31st of October.

Trick or Treat is a self-guided walk with your friends and family to participating houses to show off your costumes and collect a lolly (candy) from the householder. Look for the orange pumpkins, or decorations for participating trick or treat houses.  Each year we drop a letter into our neighbours to ask for their participation. We strive to provide a safe environment where children are welcome to take part in this fun tradition. Participation in trick or treat and the haunted house is undertaken at your own risk. See the list of participating houses (decorations I have seen) on the Trick-or-Treat page.

Haunted House

Originally built in our garage as a walk-through experience, the Haunted House has moved for 2022, and is now at 144 Latrobe Tce in Paddington, just up the road!

The walk-through experience is for kids – however, they should be a little more robust and probably over the age of 5 to give you a guide. (Parents are very welcome to walk through and check it out first!) For the younger or more sensitive kids, we also have a child-friendly display on our veranda and at the front of our house. All neighbours and their friends are welcome.
Costumes are encouraged if you’re trick or treating, and they don’t need to be scary – you can wear whatever you like. Remember to bring your bag to collect your lollies!

Bring a gold coin donation for entry into the Haunted House

Paddington Halloween is raising money for charity and all proceeds from the donations on the door of the haunted house will go to our chosen charity.

For 2022, our charity is the wonderful Precious Wings. Please read more about their work in supporting parents who have lost a baby or child. Click here to visit their website.


Thank you very much for your support in donating to this important and worthy cause.
