Santaland is a little piece of Christmas magic in the heart of the city. The good people at Myer are bringing Santa's magic to their central city stores in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Hobart and Adelaide and you can book your own exclusive ten/fifteen minutes with the big man himself.
Santa has special sessions with individuals and small groups or families. If you have a Brady Bunch type family, each with a long list of demands, you might need to book a double session.
Visiting Santa is free, but if you need a permanent reminder of your visit with Santa, his helpers also offer photographic packages starting at $27.50 for two prints. Or you could just use your phone like everyone else.
Santa visits begin in mid-November and go right up to Christmas Eve. There are up to 45 sessions available a day – from 9.00am to 8.45pm (depending on opening times). Simply choose your preferred day and select your session time.
Enter your name, email address, number of children (assuming of course you're taking the kids, but there is no reason an adult can't go visit the Big Guy) and your mobile number so they can send a reminder text the day before.
It is a brilliant system for busy parents, and the sessions are available during the school holidays before Christmas. Be quick though, as sessions are sure to fill quickly. If you do miss out on your preferred time, Santa will still be seeing walk-ins, so everyone will get to let him know their biggest Christmas desire.
