So exciting! Christmas is just around the corner and The Ginger Factory in Yandina are spoiling families once again with a very special guest! Can you guess who the special guest may be? Well, here's a clue - he loves milk and cookies, loves to dress up in red, has a long white beard and struggles down chimneys. You've guessed it! It's Santa, of course - the jolly ol' fella from up North!

Santa will be visiting for Christmas at The Ginger Factory every Wednesday to Sunday between the 5 December and Christmas Eve. Every day during this festive period, Santa will be available for photos between 9.30am to 12.30pm - don't forget to bring your camera! Santa is really excited to meet everyone too and the Gingerbread Man has whispered in my ear that there may even be a few early Christmas presents for all the boys and girls who have been especially well-behaved this year.

Christmas at The Ginger Factory is a fabulously festive reason to spend the whole day at The Ginger Factory. Pack the kiddies in, pack a picnic hamper and get ready for some adventuring at The Ginger Factory - there is just so much to do!

There are ample locations where children can run and play in fun play spaces - look out for the giant snakes and ladders - the kids just love this one! Perhaps a play in the secure, undercover playground with hidey-holes, slides and ropes for climbing would be more tempting.
