We’ve discovered the best Halloween experiences in Nundah – so find your scariest costume, your biggest treat bag, and join in the fun on Tuesday, October 31.

Nundah Halloween Maze House
Heading into its fifth year of operation, the Halloween House in Nundah is run by locals who have a love for Halloween. In its first year, they welcomed around a dozen children, while this year they expect over 3,000 people to brave the maze.

The maze is suitable for all ages, with the child-friendly maze running from 4.30pm – 6.30pm. For those looking for a real scare, the no-holds barred maze will start at 7pm. Expect jumping scarers, smoke, lighting, zombie zone and spider scene. With over 30 volunteer actors hidden inside, you can expect some frights!

This free community event is hosted by Nundah locals Kim, Nick & Curt. They want you to have a great time, but please remember to be patient (the wait is worth it!), respect the surrounding houses and drive carefully around the neighbourhood.

Boomerang Bags – Part of the Sew-lution

A new community group has formed in Nundah, which aims to be part of the ‘sew-lution’ to reducing single-use plastic bags.

Boomerang Bags is a QLD-based group that engages local communities to sew reusable bags with recycled materials.

Kylie, the co-founder of the newly-formed Nundah group, is excited to share the Bring Your Own Bag message in the local area.

‘Through Boomerang Bags we start conversations, make friends, up-cycle fabrics, and work towards shifting to a more sustainable revolution of re-use,’ says Kylie.

Boomerang Bags Nundah have planned two sewing bees to be held in October and November at the Nundah Neighbourhood Centre.

‘Each Boomerang Bag is handmade by volunteers using donated materials,’ says Kylie. ‘Bags can be made solo at home or with a group, and sewing skills are not essential!’

Join In!
Boomerang Bags Nundah Sewing Bees will be held on 12 October and 9 November, from 7pm – 9pm at the Nundah Neighbourhood Centre at 14 Station Street, Nundah.

Northgate’s Local Maker – Meet Jordan

Brisbane local Jordan Emlyn-Jones was not planning to open a timber workshop.

After finishing school on Brisbane’s Northside he moved to New York and found work as a bartender.

“Weekends were always crammed with work, but I found I had a lot of spare time during the week,” says Jordan. “I found myself working with wood out in Brooklyn and loving it. I found my passion.”

When Jordan returned to Brisbane, he set up Acorn & Oak, a one-man timber workshop, where he crafts custom pieces of furniture for local clients.

“I enjoy waking up every morning and having the ability to go into my shop and simply create,” says Jordan. “It’s a great feeling to watch something manifest from nothing, knowing it was at your hands.”

Brisbane locals enjoy entertaining, and custom dining tables are fast becoming the most in-demand item at Acorn & Oak.

“Dining tables are becoming more requested,” says Jordan. “Which is music to my ears as tables are my favourite item to create!”
