Balingup Ghost Walks

Balingup Ghost Walks

The main feature that Balingup events have in common is their quirkiness, and the Balingup Ghost Walk is no exception.  Despite the title, the event does not revolve around a bunch of locals dressed in white, jumping out from behind trees.  Many of the ghost characters can be found on the walls of the Balingup Heritage Museum and local residents “bring them to life”; telling their stories in an interactive and novel way.

The ghosts recount the true stories of pioneers – people who cleared the land and fought for their country. To watch a local “get into character” and share the story of a soldier who survived Gallipoli can be a surprisingly emotional experience.

The walks are laced with some good old “Aussie” humour – making this a great family experience and kids love it!  The route taken is around 2km long and is mainly flat but good walking shoes are required.
