Description

Santa has arrived at Stockland Wendouree, 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.

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

When is Santa arriving?
Santa will be in centre and available for photography bookings from Saturday 28 November. 
Santa photography will be available daily through till Christmas Eve.

Where is Santa located?
Santa’s set is located near Woolworths.

Do I have to book or can I just walk in?
Bookings are essential for all Santa photography sessions, including Paws & Claws and Sensitive Santa.

How do I book?
Online Bookings for all Santa photography sessions can be made here.

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 and photographs will be taken in landscape format. 
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.

In line with government restrictions, masks will be required for anyone over the age of 12 in Victoria while visiting the Santa photography set. 
Visitors will be able to remove their masks while having their photo taken only, however Santa will be required to wear his mask at all times.


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.

Will there be sessions for people with sensory challenges?
Yes, there will be designated Sensitive Santa sessions across a range of days and times for customers who experience sensory challenges and want a more subdued Santa Photography experience. 
Spaces are limited, Spaces are limited, bookings can be made here.

Will there be sessions for pets?
