Making Christmas Merrier.

Tis’ the season to be making merry memories. Create a Christmas memory and book your photo with Santa at Westfield Manukau. The much-loved tradition of visiting Santa will be balanced this year with ensuring the health and safety of our customers - and of course, Santa and his elves.  

Book now for Santa Photography and following your session, go in the draw to win 1 of 5 OPPO mobile phones, thanks to Vodafone. Vodafone is located on the ground level near LIfe Pharmacy. Terms and conditions apply, see here for details >

Online bookings are essential for Santa photography sessions. View the variety of photo packages available and book here to secure a time that is convenient for you. All children who visit Santa will also receive a reindeer headband to take home.

Still with the magic you know and love, we will be offering a COVID-Safe Santa experience this year that reflects local requirements. We encourage you to bring festive props or a favourite toy to create a unique and interactive Christmas memory. 

Masks will be required indoors for anyone over the age of 12, including Santa, and our photography set will be assessed in line with Auckland restrictions.

For your wellbeing, a few extra safety measures will be in place. Hand sanitiser will be available and a separate screen for families to view their Santa pictures. Santa’s elves will also support with cleaning throughout the day.
