Thankfully, despite being busy sorting out everyone’s presents and all, Santa always makes time for a few pit stops just before Christmas on the Gold Coast. It’s time to pull out the glad rags, brush the hair, polish the shoes and get ready for your Santa photos on the Gold Coast.

It’s usually best to plan ahead a little to get your best Santa photos.  Earlier in the season, it can be quieter in the line ups to meet Santa, so you may not have to wait so long.  It might be obvious, but make sure the kids are well fed and watered and not ready for their daytime nap (although some of the best baby photos with Santa is when bub is fast asleep in Santa’s arms!). Another tip is dress to be in the photo, even if you are not planning to.  Sometimes things don’t go to plan and you may have to hop in the photo to support the kids!

We have hunted high and low to find where you can get your best Santa photos on the Gold Coast. We have broken the list into different categories, and we always suggest checking close to the time you are going in case there are any last-minute changes.

If you are on the Gold Coast any tie of year, this is the best list of things to do on the Gold Coast with kids we know of!
