Santa Photos at NorthWest

Grab a family photo with the big guy in red!


Santa photos

2020 is a year to capture with Santa! Whether you’re coming in your Christmas sweaters, matching outfits or bringing your new-born for their first photo with Santa, capture the end of the year with a photo in Santa’s NorthWest sleigh.

PLUS, snap a picture with our Love Christmas backdrop just behind Santa’s grotto and be in to WIN* a $100 gift card. Find out more. 

Find Santa’s grotto in centre court.

There will be a hand sanitiser station available to use before and after your photo with Santa. The NorthWest QR code will be on display and we encourage you to scan this with the NZ COVID Tracer app.

Online bookings are available. Walk-ins may be welcomed depending on how busy Santa’s helpers are on the day you visit. Click the button below to book:
