Santa Photos

Santa Photos 28 November to 24 December 2020

It’s a magical Christmas at Orana Mall and this year there are heaps of ways you and your family can celebrate Christmas with a special photo.

 

Socially Distanced Santa Photos

Orana Mall is ensuring the Christmas tradition will continue in 2020 and are introducing “Socially Distanced” Santa Photos in the lead up to the festive season.  While things will be a little different with socially distanced Santa photos sessions designed to keep customers 1.5 metres from the man in red, our photography team will be working hard to make sure the moment is as magical as ever.

This year customers will be required to book a Santa Photo Session online prior to arriving at Orana Mall.  Booking your Santa Photo time is as easy as following the link to the Santa Photo Bookings. 

Your wellbeing is our priority, so physical distancing will be practised during your visit. This means that families will have their own seat next to Santa’s throne. We encourage you to bring festive props or a favourite toy to create a unique and interactive Christmas memory. All children who visit Santa will also receive a reindeer headband to take home.

 

 

Sensory Sensitive Santa Photos

There will also be a Sensory Sensitive Santa Photo session available to cater to families with special needs which can be booked separately by calling 6882 7766.

This will be held between 9am - 10am on Sunday 6 December to ensure the environment is calmer and quieter.

 

Magical Christmas Quest

As an alternative option this year we have created a fun way for you and the kids to find Santa and his friends at Orana Mall.  Simply look for our Magical Christmas Quest markers throughout the centre and download the CreativiTek App, scan the marker and see who you can find.  You can even find Santa and take your own photo!
