17 October 2016 Haunting Halloween

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.

During the tour you’ll hear stories of tragedy, the discovery of gold and the hardships of an isolated life 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 experiences.

Dressing up in Halloween costume is encouraged to add an extra fear factor. However, you are requested to please respect the final resting places of those who are buried in the Cemetery.

Bucca Cemetery is located off Bucca Road, just before McClellands Road - 8km from the Pacific Hwy.  Just 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, please contact 6648 4657.​
