Magic moments with Santa

Next date: Sunday, 06 December 2020 | 09:00 AM to Thursday, 24 December 2020 | 05:00 PM

Santa is about to set off on his annual journey from the North Pole and is looking forward to meeting the wonderful families of Melton! He’s loaded up his sleigh with plenty of hand sanitiser, trained his helpers and reindeer in social distance protocols. He’s also cancelled queuing, preferring to offer online bookings so children can visit him safely this year. His friends at Scene to Believe have his availability, and a range of photography packages to choose from, with a convenient option to pre-pay. Just be sure to make your date with Santa early as he is expected to be in high demand.

So with Santa well and truly up to speed when it comes to celebrating Christmas safely, here’s what you’ll need to know:

Kicking things off, why not gather your nearest and dearest for a magical holiday snap to round out 2020? We’re re-framing Santa Photos this year in line with Victoria’s health advice, so expect a unique, new perspective for your annual Christmas keepsake. Photos will be landscape instead of the traditional portrait view to allow for a safe distance between yourself and Santa. We also encourage you to BYO favourite festive dress-ups and props to make your moment extra memorable - think crazy Santa hats, ugly sweaters, OTT tinsel and all things red and green! 

Magic moments with Santa will commence from 11 November until 24 December, Santa and his dedicated team of Christmas helpers will be on hand to not only make sure your Santa Snap experience is unforgettable, but also safeguard the health and wellbeing of our community, including our customers, staff and of course Santa himself.

It’s with this in mind that we are activating a number of COVID-safe practices for Santa Photos, including hand sanitising stations upon entry to Santa’s HQ, dedicated cleaning ambassadors, and safe processes for viewing and collecting photos. Masks will also be required to be worn by anyone visiting over the age of 12.

We’re keeping Santa, his elves and your family safe by introducing online bookings only for Santa visits. This is to allow you to plan your visit, reduce the risk of large crowds and queues of people in-Centre, and allow for thorough cleaning and disinfecting between visits.

Our commitment to a safe Christmas

Our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our customers, staff and retailers is our primary priority, so we will continue to implement and maintain a number of precautionary measures to help keep our community safe this Christmas. 

These include:

  • A strengthened focus on disinfecting commonly touched areas.
  • Positioning of hand sanitiser stations at key points throughout the Centre.
  • Installation of signage and floor decals across parts of the Centre, reminding our community to keep 1.5 metres between themselves and others at all times.
  • Reminding our community to adhere to government mandates to wear a face covering while outside of the home, unless there's a valid reason not to. 

While our team focuses on protecting the safety and wellbeing of our community, we need you to play your part as well. Let’s work together to ensure we each practise safe social distancing during your visit to the Centre and keep a minimum of 1.5 metres between yourself and others at all times. It’s also important that we all maintain a high level of personal hygiene, and we encourage our customers to take advantage of the hand sanitisation stations located throughout the Centre. Please also wash your hands regularly, cover your coughs or sneezes with your elbow, and most importantly, stay at home if you feel unwell.
