Kids will be able to whisper their Christmas wishes direct to Santa this year with no restrictions attached to the beloved tradition for the first time since 2019.

Westfield has confirmed Santa will be arriving in centres from November 12.

The full suite of Christmas photography options will be on offer, including Sensitive Santa and Pet Photography, and the option for customers to choose to sit with Santa or slightly apart.

“Our customers know that when the decorations go up at Westfield, the festive season is on its way. It really is the most magical time of the year at our centres. We’re delighted to welcome Santa back this Christmas and after two years with restrictions in place, Santa Photography will be restriction-free, with the option to once again sit with Santa,” said General Manager of Brand Activation and Community, Jacqui Waine.

“We know our customers are looking forward to celebrating Christmas at Westfield, so we’re planning unmissable festivities across our entire centre network. There will be something for everyone, including live entertainment, gift wrapping, pop-up bars, holiday workshops and more.

“We can’t wait to get into the holiday spirit and our expert team of Santa’s helpers are busy behind the scenes to make sure that this Christmas is better than ever.”
