Photos with Santa are back at Winston Hills Mall, one of the Hills’ favourite spots. There are also dates for photos with your pets as well as sensory & immunocompromised friendly photo opportunities too!

Photos with Santa – 6 Nov- 24 Dec


Although COVID is making things a little bit different again this year, Santa Claus is still at Winston Hills Mall this year for your annual Santa portrait.

Unlike many other centres, photos are still in portrait orientation like previous years (with the magic of photography, the kids look closer to Santa while maintaining 1.5m distance) and you do not need to pre-book. You just turn up at a time and date that is convenient for you. If you do come during a busy period, the centre will activate a virtual queue to ensure the area doesn’t get too crowded and still adheres to COVID regulations.

Sensory and immunocompromised friendly photos


This opportunity will take place on Sunday 21 November from 8am – 10am. Created especially for families with special needs children and additional health concerns that compromise the immune system, this experience takes the stress out of getting a photo taken with Santa during COVID.

Bookings ARE required for this session via Centre Management.
