If you want some spine-tingling
chills this Halloween, how about a torch-lit tour of Bucca’s Historic Cemetery?
On Monday, October 31, at
7.00pm, the Coffs Harbour Heritage Executive Committee will be conducting a
special FREE cemetery walk that includes visiting the last resting-places of
some of Bucca area’s early residents.

in the bush. During the tour, the former curator of Coffs Harbour’s
cemeteries, Ian Corbett, will also give a brief, but humorous insight into his

respect the final resting places of those who are buried in the Cemetery.

look for the rainbow flags. Anyone wishing to take part is advised to bring a
torch, insect repellent, comfortable walking shoes – and a strong heart! The walk will end at around 8.30pm.
Bookings are essential with only
25 places available. To book, and for further information about the event,
