December is upon us and it’s time to decide where to get the annual Santa photo. The shopping centres are busy and the kids are in a bad mood…. Never fear for Santa is at the Sydney Tower Eye!

Jingle all the way to Sydney Tower Eye this Christmas and experience the magic of the North Pole in the heart of Sydney’s CBD.

From 3 December – 23 December, the Observation Deck at the Sydney Tower Eye will be transformed into Santa’s Highest Grotto – a Christmas wonderland 250 metres above street level.

Children (and parents!) are invited to share their Christmas wishes with Santa as they’re transported to his festive grotto complete with a fireplace, music and a Christmas tree.

To add to the festive spirit, guests will be able to pose in a custom-built Santa sleigh, complete with baubles, reindeer and decorative tinsel, outside the attraction’s 4-D cinema.  

Along with the Christmas festivities, visitors to Sydney Tower Eye will have the opportunity to capture their magical visit with a FREE Santa photo for all kids!

Santa’s Grotto will be open at Sydney Tower Eye from Saturday 3 December – Friday 23 December. During this time Santa will be open for visits and last minute present requests weekdays from 4.00pm - 7.00pm and weekends from 11.00pm - 6.00pm, then 11.00pm - 6.00pm every day from Saturday 17 December.

Whether it’s a family tradition, a gift or just for fun, Santa’s Highest Grotto at Sydney Tower Eye has something for everyone to enjoy this festive season.
