Still with the magic you know and love, we will be offering a COVID-Safe Santa experience this year that reflects local requirements. The traditional portrait image will be replaced with a landscape shot, to allow for physical distancing. We encourage you to bring festive props or a favourite toy to create a unique and interactive Christmas memory. 

Customers over the age of 12 are required to wear a mask when moving around the Santa set in NSW, including Santa. For your wellbeing, a few extra safety measures will be in place. Hand sanitiser will be available and a separate screen for families to view their Santa pictures. Santa’s elves will also support with cleaning throughout the day.

Please note Santa Dennis will not be available for Santa Photos this year.
