New places to find Santa
Harold Holt Swimming Pool
Once finding Santa was easy. Simply go to a big shopping centre, clamber onto his knee and whisper your secret desires for presents into his snowy white beard.
But these days you can find him in some bizarre and unexpected settings.
You can find him underwater scuba diving at the SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium from 1-25 December. He'll have his Santa sack and he'll be giving out fishy morsels to the huge stingrays, sharks and hundreds of multi-coloured aquatic creatures that are following in his wake. See him every day at the Dive Feed Presentation at 11am from now till Christmas Day. Included in your admission cost to the aquarium. Don't queue up and buy your tickets as there are hefty discounts online.
He must be suffering from the Australian heat because he will also getting wet a The Christmas Pool Party at the Harold Holt Pool on Sunday the 22 of December between 1pm and 4pm. This time he will be wearing his wet suit! This a free event. Poor Santa with all those kids chasing and splashing him. Hope he can swim fast.
At the Jam Factory you'll be able to find Sumo Santa. You can jump and roll about in a Sumo Santa costume. Grab a friend and have a play fight nobody can get hurt. I guess Santa was bit fat in any case so he had it coming.
