FANCY a little Halloween fright? How about a spine-tingling, torch-lit tour of historic Coramba Cemetery?

On Friday, October 31, at 7pm, the Coffs Harbour City Council Heritage Executive Committee will be conducting a special FREE cemetery walk that includes visiting the last resting-places of some of the more colourful of Coramba's earliest residents.

Dressing up in Halloween costume is encouraged to add an extra fear factor! Last year's inaugural tour of Coffs Harbour's Historic Cemetery was a big hit with Halloween thrill-seekers.

This year, anyone coming along to Coramba will be regaled with tales of real-life horror and tragedy that left a shadow over the village's early years.

Bookings are essential with only 25 places available. To book, and for further information about this FREE event, contact 6648 4657.

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 8.30pm with light refreshments.

Coramba Cemetery is on East Bank Road. The entry is 1.5 km on the right after the Coramba Road/East Bank Road turnoff.
