With the rising popularity of Halloween celebrations across Australia and New Zealand over the last few years, more Aussies and Kiwis are marking the traditionally American holiday.
Whether it’s a costume party or children collecting candy while trick or treating in their neighbourhoods, there is a growing trend of Halloween celebrations taking place down under and across the ditch.
In fact, globally there has been a 50 percent year-on-year increase in Airbnb wishlists with the name “Halloween”.*
From a pumpkin coloured 19th century home in Twillingate, Canada, an entire Pumpkin Island on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, to a luxury villa with a candy coloured pumpkin statue in Ubud, Indonesia, there is a pumpkin-themed Airbnb listing for every type of traveller.
If you’re into pumpkin carving, pumpkin pie and pumpkin spice lattes rather than the scary, spooky and spine-tingling this Halloween, Airbnb has rounded up some of the most pump(k)in’ listings around the world that might be just for you.
