Annual Santa photos are a must for the family photo album and whether you want a traditional photo at the shopping centre or an outdoor photo session, there are lots of different options all over the Coast.
Some centres are even holding special Sensory Santa sessions for kids with special needs or pet sessions where you can bring the beloved family dog or cat along.
You can queue virtually which is very handy for families with restless little ones, and helps free up time for Christmas shopping.
There's also a roaming Santa in David Jones.
For something even more special kids can attend Storytime with Santa and Mrs Claus on the 3rd, 4th, 10th and 11th of December. Tickets cost $10 with all proceeds being donated to Camp Breakaway and children will also receive breakfast and a free gift. Visit the website to make a booking - sessions are limited to 30 children.
Dates: Every Saturday and Sunday from the 20th November until the 18th December.
All families receive one free 6"x4" photo with Santa (there is a limit of one photo per family).
Sensory Santa sessions are a chance for children with special needs to meet Santa in a more quiet environment with less stimulation. Sessions are usually held at times when the shopping centre is less busy and lights are lowered. Bookings are usually required and parents will need to advise what their children may be sensitive about on the day. Contact the shopping centres individually to arrange a time on one of the dates below.
