Places to see Santa this year

Where to get a photo with Santa this year

Santa has been given the all-clear to enter Queensland and has taken up his spot on the red throne for another year of Santa photos. While this year will look a little different to Santa photos of the past, there are still plenty of opportunities to take the kids to get a photo with Santa this year. We've found a few options from around the region, scroll through the list below to find one near you in the Moreton Bay Region. 



Westfield North Lakes

Take the opportunity to capture your children's joyous and festive spirit while meeting Santa at Westfield North Lakes.

Children with sensory challenges will love the Sensitive Santa Photography sessions, where the calming, comfortable photography sessions operate before stores open, while the centre is quieter, to create a relaxed and sensory-friendly Santa experience. Bookings are essential for Sensitive Santa sessions, with no walk-ins available. Get your tickets here.

Date: on everyday until 24th December

Location: Westfield North Lakes, North Lakes Drive, North Lakes

Date: on everyday until 24th December
