Santa Photos

27 NOV 2021 - 24 DEC 2021
Outside Farmers

Capture the magic of Christmas!

Have your picture taken with Santa at his Grotto between Saturday 27th November and Christmas Eve.

The health and wellbeing of Santa, our staff and all the families who visit is a priority this year. Please do not visit Santa if you or your children are unwell. Santa and our team are doing everything they can to make your Santa Photo experience magical and safe. During these times we ask for your support and understanding.

Santa's Grotto operates under the retail setting and as such, Vaccine Passes are not required. We need to keep the Christmas team ( and Santa) at 1m distance to keep everyone safe. Practise smiling with your eyes as everyone over the age of 12 will need to wear a mask, in line with the Government requirements.

Thank you for helping keep Christmas magical and safe this year. See you soon

Photos start from $17.90 and are managed by Scene To Believe. 

Santa's Gift
This year $1 for every photo session will be donated to Autism NZ.
