Santa takes up residence at Santa's Wonderland

Friday, 29 November

Santa Claus is coming to town and will be staying at his new Wonderland at 142 Molesworth Street right up until Christmas eve as part of Lismore City Council’s Christmas in the Heart celebrations.

“After a very successful Christmas campaign last year it is great to bring Santa’s Wonderland back to Lismore’s City Centre for a second year,” Acting City Centre Manager Nathan Dee said.

“Our new location has allowed us to redesign the shop and build on last year’s success. We are looking forward to a big Christmas in the City Centre.”

Shoppers of all ages from the young to the young at heart are invited to step into this magical Christmas world and enjoy fun festive activities. Open every day between 10am and 4pm, visitors can:

  • Have a photo with Santa from 10am-2pm
  • Write and post a letter to Santa
  • Use the present wrapping station
  • Take a break in the rest area for tired grown-ups

To help spread the Christmas spirit throughout the entire City Centre, a huge Shop and Win promotion will be taking place. Simply spend more than $30 in participating stores and go in the draw to win great daily prizes. Prizes will be drawn at 3pm daily with a prize pool of over $15,000.

“The aim of the Santa’s Wonderland is to create a festive atmosphere in the City Centre and encourage people to shop local,” Nathan said.

“Lismore has everything you need for a fabulous Christmas right here.

“Sure, we can all buy things online these days, but the best way to support our local economy and a thriving city is to shop where you live. Every time you do, you’re supporting someone’s livelihood and helping to build and grow Lismore.

“Is there any better Christmas present you can give to your town?”
