Santa will be on his Christmas Throne in Trainworks Main Exhibition Building from 12.45pm to 2.45pm. Grab a pen and write your Christmas wish list down ready to tell Santa Claus.

During your meet and greet time with Santa Claus, our staff will snap an instant polaroid picture of your family, it’s our free gift to take home with you. We can also email you a copy of the polaroid picture so you can send it on to your family and friends. Each child receives a Candy Cane.

Santa Claus, and his helper, will be walking around Trainworks from 2.45pm to 3.30pm to ensure all children receive a free gift!

Letters to Santa can be mailed directly to the North Pole from the Mail Van.
