Santa photos with White Rabbit Foto

Santa is coming to Grafton Shoppingworld to ensure you still experience the much-loved tradition of visiting Santa. With prioritizing the health and safety of you, our customers – and of course Santa and his helpers, this year it will be a little different…

For your wellbeing, extra safety measures will be put in place, including hand sanitizer on entry to the Santa setting, the cleaning of seating in between each visit and additional elves to manage cleaning.

We strongly encourage you to do the following;

  • Maintain your distance to other families and follow the floor decal social distancing indicators when waiting to see Santa
  • Use hand sanitizer on entry to the Santa Setting
  • The number of people allowed in the Santa Set will be limited based on the 4 square meter rule. Signage at the Santa Setting will indicate the maximum capacity (Please note: This does not relate to members of a family that reside at the same residence)
  • Due to social distancing, unfortunately family members will NOT be able to high five Santa, sit on the one next to Santa or sit on Santa’s knee. All family members will need to remain 1.5 metres from Santa at all times (Parents and carers we really appreciate your assistance with younger children)
  • There will be a stool provided in front of Santa’s chair for you to sit and pose for your photo with Santa. With a few photography tricks you will appear closer than you really are
  • The stools will be cleaned and sanitized between each sitting

We strongly encourage you to do another lap of the centre if the line appears at its maximum. You can view the variety of photo packages available here to save time while visiting Santa.

Sensitive Santa will also make a return this year. Sensitive Santa is tailored to children with sensory challenges or those that may require some extra time, this then gives the opportunity to have their photo taken in a relaxed environment. To make a booking please contact White Rabbit Foto direct on 0401 184 447.

You’ll notice our dedicated elves around the centre to help remind you to maintain 1.5 metres distance between other customers, and hand sanitizer will also be provided at various points around the centre for your use.
