Santa is arriving at Stockland Balgowlah, and this year he’s bringing a safer photo experience.

We’ve made some changes to ensure that your time with Santa is fun, and that we can safely and comfortably deliver a magical experience to our visitors this Christmas. 

Sensitive Santa sessions have been designated across a range of days and times for customers who experience sensory challenges and want a more subdued Santa Photography experience. Check out all the essential details below:

Where is Santa located?
Santa’s set is located on the Ground Floor, opposite Bean Obsessed.

What will the Santa photography experience look like this year?
Due to COVID19, to ensure the safety of our staff, Santa, and of course you, a physical distance of 1.5m between customers and Santa will be required. There will be stools for customers to sit on to have their photos taken with Santa, as customers won’t be able to sit on Santa’s throne or knee. Physical distance between Santa, customers and Santa Photography staff will also need to be observed. The Santa Set will be cleaned after each group finishes their photography experience. Our friendly staff will be able to direct you through your 2020 Santa Photography experience. We ask for your patience and allow more time to have your photos taken. 

How can we make our Santa photography experience more memorable?
We encourage you to bring your own props should you wish to include these in your photo. Some fun ideas include Santa hats, reindeer ears and Rudolph noses. A limited selection of props will be available during your photography session, which only Santa will hold.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our customers, retailers, team members and the wider community is our highest priority so we are taking extra precautions to ensure our centres are clean, hygienic and minimise large scale interactions.
