Santa's Wonderland with an incredible 35 sessions running from 6th – 24th December at the Adelaide Showground is Adelaide's biggest Christmas event.
In its 4th year of creating amazing memories for families, it gives parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles the chance to re-create those huge Christmas experiences just like they enjoyed while growing up. Santa's Wonderland is set to delight and amaze with a return of all the favourites plus a host of new activities and surprises.
From the moment you walk through the big red curtains as part at the start of every session, the huge smiles and looks of awe light up the faces of guests as they walk through the snowfall into a wonderful world of magic! With its stunning décor, pageantry and activities galore, children can enjoy the Ice Wonderland, Candyland and Traditional Family Christmas Wonderland zones.
The family-owned and managed event is a true labour of love and testament to its magnitude over three weeks taking up to 10,000 sq/m in the Goyder Pavilion. The Santa's Wonderland elves have arrived in Adelaide and are hard at work already with tickets always selling fast.

Santa's Wonderland creator Amanda Watkin's vision was for Santa's Wonderland to be the most magical and memorable experience it possibly can be. Bringing to life the magic of Christmas for families is her number one focus, and with a 5-year-old herself knows just how special Christmas should be. Amanda is always looking at growing Santa's Wonderland, visiting major events around the globe to source new concepts and elements to ensure its continued development and to keep it fresh. Having seen the looks on people's faces as they walk through the big red curtains they're absolutely mesmerised!
