The Santa Course

When you’ve got a job like Santa’s, it’s easy to get yourself in a bit of a tangle and tad of a tizzy – his duties take ‘responsibilities may vary’ to another level!

Santa wears a lot of hats to get everything ready for Christmas, but this year he’s got his candy canes in a knot. His different tasks are scattered all around Adelaide, and he’s left a magical trail in his wake on The Santa Course. From North Adelaide to Rundle Mall you’ll find tasks here, bells there, and 10 giant Santas everywhere!

Meet Santa the Santa the Navigator, who’s not just plotting The Santa Course, but his global Christmas Eve route too! Say hi to Santa the Spy who’s got a keen eye on who’s naughty or nice, and Santa the Snapper, who loves to spam happy snaps on his Santagram.

Help Santa with his Santa chores by completing The Santa Course, and for your chance to WIN Santa's Sleigh of Surprises. Check out the full map, and explore the magical locations hidden across Adelaide this Christmas.
