Santa Photos

Santa Photos 2nd - 24th December 2021

We are bringing family and friends back together this festive season and there is no better way to celebrate than with a special photo with Santa.


Socially Distanced Santa Photos

Park Beach Plaza is ensuring the Christmas tradition will continue in 2021 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 again be required to book a Santa Photo Session online prior to arriving at Park Beach Plaza.  Booking your Santa Photo time is as easy as following the link to the Santa Photo Bookings. 

Your wellbeing is our priority, so in addition to booking online you will be required to sign in via the Service NSW App when attending the Santa set and providing your vaccination status as required by the current NSW Government regulations depending on the date you book.  We also ask that your practice physical distancing 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.

Please note: due to Covid-19 restrictions there is a limit of 6 people per group for Santa Photos.



Sensory Sensitive Santa Photos

There will also be Sensory Sensitive Santa Photo sessions available to cater to families with special needs which can be booked separately by following the prompts on the booking website.

These will be held at specific times to ensure the environment is calmer and quieter. The photography crew will call ahead of time to check if you have any special requirements for your booking.



Why hasn’t Park Beach Plaza cancelled having Santa in centre this year?

Visiting Santa is a Christmas ritual for many and we want to continue to offer this festive experience at Park Beach Plaza for families this year.  The health and safety of our customers, team and Santa is our highest priority and safety measures will be in place.

Visitors to Santa Photos must book in prior to arriving to assist us with reducing queues.

Visiting Santa will be a contactless experience:

  • Santa social distanced at 1.5 metres away from anyone posing for their photo;
  • Hand sanitiser will be available, which Santa will also be using regularly
  • If you are not comfortable with Santa photos in centre this year we understand and we look forward to welcoming you back when the world is a safer place.


Do we need to book or can we just turn up?

Yes, you must book online before arriving at the Santa Photo set.  This is to assist with managing queues.
