You don't need to take out a second mortgage to see Santa
Visiting Santa Claus is a huge part of Christmas for many children and this colourful character seems to pop up all over the city of Melbourne at this time of year. How he can be in so many places at once is a conundrum, but I guess that's the magic of Christmas.

Santa's Elves will keep your little ones amused whilst they wait to see Santa

You could spend a small fortune shelling out to see Santa at a shopping centre or department store, or you could get savy and visit Santa in City Square in Swanston Street for free. We've taken our son to see Santa here for the last two years and been pleasantly surprised by the experience. No vast queues, an extremely authentic looking Santa, roving elves to help with the smooth running of things and best of all; you take the photos yourself and get a picture that you actually like.

City Square will be renamed Christmas Square for the month of December

Throughout the month of December (up until Christmas Eve), Santa Claus will be gracing City Square every day. His busy schedule means that you can visit between 10am and noon or 1pm and 3pm any day of the week.

Look Dad - it's the real Santa Claus!

With the money you save, you could donate a gift to one of the many Christmas appeals run throughout Australia, such as the Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal or the Smith Family Christmas Appeal.
