Santa’s Arrival: Westfield Chatswood Christmas Parade
He’s big, red and jolly… can you guess who’s coming to town? Yes! Santa Claus is coming to Westfield Chatswood on Sunday 12 November. Festivities to welcome the big man will be kicking off at 10.30am, with a parade through Level 5, Level 4 and Level 3 that features all your favourite Christmas characters including Mrs Claus, Santa’s elves, Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph. The parade will culminate at the brand new Santa Set on Level 3, which is one of the biggest in NSW…and the weather forecast says SNOW! Then stick around for music, entertainment and roaming characters, plus get your photo taken with Santa from 11am.

Ho ho ho! Santa’s elves have been busy this year, building a huge, brand new Santa set for those treasured family photos. The new set will be located on Level 3, near the Concierge Desk. Kids will be entertained with scenes of little Christmas critters as they make their way through the village to see Santa.
Make sure you get in early and book your visit in advance with the clever online booking system – simply choose your date and session and you can arrive anytime within your allocated time frame to have your photo taken with Santa. All packages are pre-paid when you book, which means no need to pay once you’ve had your photo taken, unless you would like to purchase additional items.
While bookings are recommended, walk-ins will still be welcome. There will be two different queues for online bookings and walk-ins.

Bring your furry little friends along to meet Santa Claus! Every Sunday morning Westfield Chatswood will be opening up the Santa set for four-legged friends.
Simply book your spot online, choose your package and turn up with your pet in tow – it’s quick and easy! Santa will cosy up with your pet, and you’ll receive a lovely photo of your fur baby to share with family and friends.
