Our new Santa set

  • News

It’s been a year like no other. Despite unprecedented challenges, we’ve all adapted to a ‘new normal’ – new ways of working, schooling, shopping and living – and new ways to appreciate the simple things in life we once took for granted, too.

It’s in this spirit that our new Santa set was born, a new and very Australian way of reimagining this much-loved tradition. All the iconic symbols of Christmas are there – baubles, pine trees, ribbons and candy canes, of course, all dressed in vibrant red and forest greens – celebrated in a new way that’s modern, bright and fun.

In response to the impact of lockdowns on our wider community over the past year, we’ve made a conscious decision not to commission decorations reliant on imported components, but rather engaged a team of local (and award-winning) artists and makers to create a whimsical new home for Santa and a fresh approach to capturing the essence of the season throughout the centre environment – designed and made in Australia. It’s a sustainable approach that has helped reduce the carbon footprint of our celebrations this year – helping the planet, and local employment.

The set has also been designed with hygiene in mind. As we move towards living with COVID-19, we’ll continue to place the health of our customers first – not to mention Santa and his helpers – by remaining absolutely committed to providing an experience that is safe as much as it is fun. The smooth, non-porous surfaces on the set components allow for greater hygiene and ease of cleaning, compared to the sets and decorations used in previous years.

This year’s home for Santa is different to what we’ve done in the past, but as recent events have taught us, getting out of our comfort zones and being open to new ways of doing things can often help us grow.  Best of all, Santa’s given it a big thumbs up! Our goal is to make this a really, really happy Christmas for all, by making our centre as easy, convenient and inspiring as we can. We hope you and your family enjoy this really special time of year, and make sure not to miss seeing Santa in his fun, new happy land.
