Santa's Pawtraits

Join us for our very popular Christmas pet potraits. Bring your fur baby along for a photo with Santa that will be in the family album forever. Dress-ups encouraged! 

WHERE: Candyland (between H&M and Hallensteins). Please use the rooftop Farmers entrance to enter the centre, as other entry doors will be locked during these sessions.
WHEN: 8, 11 & 18 December
BOOKINGS: Essential (no walk ins). Click on the button below.
COST: Photos start from $17.90 and are managed by Scene To Believe
SANTA'S GIFT: $1 for every photo session will be donated to a local charity

We are also offering standard Santa sessions and Sensitive Santa sessions.


The health and wellbeing of Santa, our staff and all the families who visit is a priority this year. Please do not visit Santa if you or your children are unwell. Santa and our team are doing everything they can to make your Santa Photo experience magical and safe. During these times we ask for your support and understanding.

Candyland operates under the retail setting and as such, Vaccine Passes are not required. We need to keep the Christmas team (and Santa) at 1m distance to keep everyone safe. Practice smiling with your eyes as everyone over the age of 12 (including Santa) will need to wear a mask, in line with the Government requirements.

  • Please scan the NZ Covid Tracer QR code on entry to the Santa set
  • Please maintain your distance from other families at all times. 
  • Only 1 family is permitted on the Santa Set at any time.

Thank you for helping keep Christmas magical and safe this year. See you soon.
