A Little Santa Joy
Santa’s not cancelled! With new protective measures in place, you and your family will be able to enjoy a magical Christmas experience and have your photos taken with Santa.

Our Santa photos will be taken by the lovely Tess from Contessa Photography, continuing the tradition every year for the last 10 years. She will be implementing a number of precautions to operate in a COVID-safe way. Some of the precautions include:
- All session times are to be booked by the online platform. NO bookings will be taken at the Santa setting. We encourage payment to be made at the time of booking.
- A maximum of six sessions will be offered per hour. Each session time will go for 5 - 7 minutes to ensure there is time to clean all equipment used by the previous booking.
- Social distancing must be practised at all time and masks must be worn (if mandated at the time) until the photo is about to be taken.
- Sanitiser is provided on entry.
- Children will not touch Santa or be sitting on Santa’s knee. We encourage children to wave at Santa and speak to him from the recommended distance of 1.5 metres. Children will be seated in front of Santa for the photo, with 1.5 metres distance between. Santa will be seated the whole time.
- Additional staff will be employed during busy periods to maintain social distancing if required when shoppers are lining up, as well as extra cleaning and disinfecting when necessary.
