Halloween Hauntings in The Rocks
With streets steeped in history and stories of dark tales past, The Rocks is the perfect place to embrace your inner ghoul and celebrate Halloween.
Visit and you’ll find ghosts and ghouls down haunted alleyways, scary movies showing outdoors under a full moon, spooky pumpkin carving, a creepy treasure hunt and the return of The Rocks Markets with a halloween twist.
The Haunted Hunt
This creepy trail is guaranteed to get you and the family out exploring and telling ghost stories in the true spirit of Halloween.
To complete the hunt:
- Roam the cobbled laneways of The Rocks to discover five historic buildings with Haunted Hunt QR code decals on them.
- Scan the QR codes to reveal the ghost stories about each building, as well as a secret letter.
- Find all five ghost stories and secret letters if you’re brave enough. Once you’ve found all five stories the secret letters will spell a word.
- Take the secret word to The Rocks Square to claim your spooky prize!
Can you find the ghost stories and secret word first? The Haunted Hunt begins on 30 October and runs to 31 October, 2021.
