On Saturday 27 October 2012 a surreal spectacle took place as hundreds of zombies walked through the centre of Sydney, Australia.
The undead assembled at the fountain in Hyde Park North and then made their way along Elizabeth Street towards Belmore Park, opposite Central Station, a distance of about 2.5kms.
Anybody out shopping in the Sydney Central Business District (CBD) would have been in for a shock.
The Sydney Zombie Walk Facebook group reported that the event raised $1,914.70, plus 2 Euro cents and 10 Saudi Arabian Riyals. Fifty percent of donations go to the Brain Foundation and the other fifty percent help with running costs.
