Visit Santa in his workshop this Festive season – and don’t forget to bring your camera for a pic!

Santa and his elves are hard at work in his Melbourne workshop, making toys and presents for the big day. It’s a busy time of year and there’s lots of tools and machinery to help Santa get ready. Say hello to the big man and pose for a photo from a socially safe distance.

You do not need to book in to take a photo, but please note there may be a small wait time during busy periods.

On rare occasions, Santa can’t make it in to his Workshop. To avoid disappointment, we recommend checking our Instagram stories or Twitter updates before you make a trip in to see him – to see if there are any Santa updates.

This is a Christmas Festival event, presented by City of Melbourne with support from the Victorian Government and Fed Square.
