News Haunting History Special Halloween Walk

Salisbury is dressing up for free Haunting History tour

Salisbury is dressing up for free Haunting History tour with paranormal expert Allen Tiller

Salisbury’s own Mrs Robinson – a suspected black widow – and the tragic case of a child falling down a well are among the creepy, but true stories people can hear on a free guided haunted history walk to mark Halloween.

On Sunday 31 October, 4pm to 6pm, starting at the Salisbury Community Hub, attendees will join Allen Tiller, a well-known author and paranormal specialist, as he uncovers the stories behind some iconic Salisbury landmarks, including the Salisbury Hotel, Twelve 25 Youth Centre and much more.

Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM said she was looking forward to seeing people dressed up in their scariest costumes for the free event.

It’s a special opportunity to learn more about the darker history of the places and streets we pass by every day and of course, the people who walked these streets generations ago. This event will bring the spooky season alive and offer another way people can connect to our City and experience the timeline from its very beginnings to now: one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in SA.

The tour will take approximately 1.5 hours on an easy-level 2km trail, stopping at 12 historical sites and includes a sweet treat of lollies on arrival.
