Sydney Zombie Walk

Zombie Walk

Now in its eighth year, Sydney Zombie Walk has been luring thousands of zombies out of their hiding places to drag their rotting limbs across Sydney’s streets to raise awareness for Australia’s Brain Foundation. The event raised $10,000 in 2016 alone.

There will be food trucks serving up “zombie treats” on the day and make-up artists on site to get you looking especially horrible, along with exhibits, competitions and prizes. Best of all, it’s for a great cause.

Registration is free.
