Where to See Father Christmas in Adelaide
Taking the kids to see Santa is a Christmas tradition for many families… not to mention a great way to get a heads-up on what the small people in your household have on their Christmas wish list!
If you’ve don’t have the time to visit Santa Claus in his official office in the Arctic Circle the good news is you don’t have to go to the North Pole to see Father Christmas. Leading up to Christmas the big guy in the red suit will be making appearances all over Adelaide.
If you’d like to have a photo with Father Christmas, and give him some ideas on what you might like to receive if you’re super good, we’ve rounded up the most magical places to go and see him around Adelaide.
