COVID-19 Guidelines

The health and well-being of Santa, his elves and all the families who visit, is our highest priority. We developed a COVIDSafe plan which allows us to serve you in a reliable and safe environment. To this end we have introduced several initiatives:

  • To monitor the number of people at Sydney Beach Santa you will need to make an online booking to visit Santa. Bookings are limited so book early.
  • If anyone is feeling unwell, experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, been in contact with someone who has tested positive to COVID-19, or been to a COVID hotspot please reschedule your booking for 14 days’ time by calling 0419 419 306 or emailing us at info@sydneybeachsanta.com.au
  • Please don’t arrive early for your booked session as you will not be able to queue until your session time starts.
  • Maintain your distance to other families and follow the social distancing indicators when waiting to see Santa.
  • Please use hand sanitizer on entry to Sydney Beach Santa at Freshwater Beach.
  • The number of people allowed on the Sydney Beach Santa set will be limited based on the current State Government Regulations. Signage at entry point will indicate the maximum capacity which include Santa and the photographer.
  • Due to social distancing unfortunately Santa will need to remain 1.5m from those visiting, meaning you won’t be able to sit on Santa’s knee, high-five, or hug Santa this year. Parents and carers we really appreciate your assistance with younger children. Unfortunately Santa will be unable to hold babies or young children this year. Either a parent or older sibling will need to hold the baby.
  • Santa will be standing behind the lounge so he will still be in the photo but keeping everyone CovidSafe.
  • The lounge will be sprayed with Hospital Grade Disinfectant between each sitting.
  • Unfortunately we won’t be able to offer any props this year but you are welcome to bring along your own hats, headbands etc and get dressed up for a fun Santa Photo.
  • To ensure we maintain the highest safety protocols you may be temperature checked on entry to Sydney Beach Santa.

During these uncertain times we ask for your support and understanding. Santa and his elves are doing everything they can to make your Santa Photo experience magical and safe. Please respect and listen to their instructions. Thank you.
