Everyone Gets The Opportunity For The Perfect Santa Shot This Year

Everyone Gets The Opportunity For The Perfect Santa Shot This Year

Avoid nasty queues and get a great snap of kids, pets, or big kids at the Burnside Village!


It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas at Burnside Village! The fact that they’re offering us a chance to win an Audi for shopping was reason number one why they are our go to spot for our Chrissy needs. Reason number two? Their GORGE new Santa photography area!

Burnside Village are giving everyone the opportunity to get the perfect shot with Santa this Christmas. They will be running ’till Christmas Eve with out of hours time slots for children with special needs, a Christmas LegoLand exhibition and play area, the chance to have your pets apart of your photo and a digital queue so you can avoid those annoying lines!

Gone are the days of those dreaded lines. You know the ones where they creep around the corner? The worst. When you visit the Santa set in the mall you will be placed in a digital queue where they’ll give you an estimate waiting time so you can go off and do your shopping or grab a bite to eat and then you’ll get sent a text notification when it’s your turn. There will also be screens propped up around the place so you can keep your eye on it.

For children with special needs, Burnside Village has Sensitive Santa hours out of key trading hours so families can avoid the hustle and bustle of the mall and get your photo in a friendly, quiet environment.

We all know that our pets are a part of the family too and it seems like finally they are getting the opportunity to be professionally snapped for your Christmas pictures (about time)! Special bookings can be made to ensure everyone in the family can meet Mr. Claus.

And if that wasn’t enough…a Christmas LegoLand is also coming to the mall December 12th and will have daily activities running. It will be located just behind the Santa set so the perfect spot to wait for your photo with Santa! More deets coming.

We’re already booking our pooches in for a wash and cut at the dog parlour and am expecting everyone to enjoy the best Christmas card to date!
