Visit Queen Street for markets, kids’ activities and ghoulish fun in the ghostly street festival

On the second weekend of the annual Festival of Fisher’s Ghost, the street fair lines Campbelltown’s Queen Street with markets and live entertainment inspired by the ghost of ex-convict Fred Fisher.

It claims to be Australia’s only major festival inspired by an apparition. Activities include a carnival, an outdoor cinema, and an interactive horror experience. Plus, there’ll be performances by band Kallidad.

Legend has it that Fisher’s ghost appeared in Campbelltown in 1826, pointing a local farmer to a nearby paddock where Fisher’s body was found buried.
