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

As we approach the busy Christmas season, it’s important we all do as much as possible to keep ourselves and our fellow shoppers safe and healthy. 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.

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.

Here is our essential guide to all things Santa at Stockland:
