Santa Photos at the Plaza

November 28 @ 9:00 am - December 24 @ 3:00 pm

Enjoy a brand new interactive Santa Photo experience at Mount Sheridan Plaza!

We have an exciting new covid-safe Christmas Photo experience this year!

The tradition of family Santa photos is must for many people in Cairns, and we know that 2020 has been quite the ride, so we are so excited to be able to present you with the chance to continue your Christmas photo tradition but with a difference, because Santa’s doing things a little different this year.

Yes, Santa will be here in person, however, he is leaving his big red chair behind, swapping it for two huge Christmas-themed photo sets – one featuring a Tropical Theme (Nov 28-Dec 10), the other, a more traditional Night-Time Sleigh Theme (Dec 11- 24), both created with laser-cut props and minimal touchpoints for a covid-safe fun photo experience.

Mount Sheridan Plaza has the only Santa photos in Cairns being done in this new creative way!

Santa Photos at the Plaza will take place in Centre Court from November 28 until Christmas Eve from 10am-2pm daily.

You can also skip the queue using our customised online booking system. While bookings are encouraged, a walk-in line will be available.

All of Santa’s visitors will receive a FREE gift!
