Santa Mail | Write & Send a Letter to Santa this Christmas

Send a Letter to Santa this Christmas

The Australia Post Santa Mail program is a fun and exciting way for primary school-aged children to write letters to Santa and receive a personalised response from him.

Families right across Australia can spread the merry by encouraging kids to step away from digital screens and return to the evergreen practice of handwriting.  The Santa Mail website features an activity guide suitable for ages 5–12, as well as festive templates to inspire creativity so the letters stand out on Santa’s desk. 

Families can mail their letters right up until 2 December 2022.  Some Post Offices will also have a floor-standing Santa Mailbox for you to pop your letters into.

Australia Post Head of Marketing Communications, Corrina Brazel, says,

“Letter writing is such a wonderful way for kids to express themselves creatively – either in a group or as an individual. Writing to Santa is the chance to get all those extra special wishes out into the world with the hope that Santa will make them come true!”

4 Steps to Send a Letter to Santa:

  1. Brainstorm – Get inspired by the handy templates and ideas for parents and teachers.
  2. Write – Santa loves hearing about family Christmas traditions, and what’s on a child’s wish list.
  3. Send – Post your letters to Santa’s address below as soon as you can – we’re a long way away from the North Pole after all!
  4. Track – Follow your letter’s journey to Santa’s mailbox using their interactive Santa Mail Tracker.


To receive a reply from Santa, make sure you attach a 65c Christmas card-only stamp on the front of the envelope. And don’t forget to write your name and address on the back or Santa won’t know where to send your letter!

Please note, Santa can only reply to Australian addresses and you don’t need to include a self-addressed stamped envelope to receive a reply.
