Santa the Navigator

Meet Santa the Navigator!

Santa the Navigator, true to his name, is responsible for creating the most efficient and most accurate route, to all the children's houses in the world (a very big task, may we add!). He knows exactly what areas to avoid for traffic are, or a sneaky back street to cut time out of his journey - even without using his SantNav.

Along The Santa Course, from North Adelaide to Rundle Mall you’ll find tasks here, bells there, and giant Santas everywhere! Find all 10 Santas around Adelaide to help Santa Claus complete his Santa chores for your chance to win.

And to say a very big 'thank you!' for helping him complete these festive tasks, Santa is giving three very lucky families the chance to stay firmly on the 'Nice' list for the next few years!

Oh, and we forgot to mention - they'll also WIN Santa's Sleigh of Surprises.

Santa's Sleigh of Surprises

It turns out that Santa had some extra presents hidden away in his sleigh (that's what happens when you don't take it to the sleigh-wash!). He's decided that as an extra special festive treat, three lucky winners deserve a sur-prize pack for helping him with his various Christmas chores! By visiting each of the 10 Santas across Rundle Mall and the city, it's your chance to win 1 of 3 Santa's Sleigh of Surprises packs!

With over $1,000 worth of vouchers, this will be an extra exciting Christmas present for three lucky winners! Included will be vouchers from Rundle Mall, FunLab, 2KW Bar & Restaurant, Adelaide Central Markets, Adelaide Aquatic Centre, and so much more.

Learn more about Santa the Navigator

Ever wondered how Santa gets around the world in just a flash? The secret lies in the route planning. Needless to say, he’s checking it twice. With new developments across South Australia, Santa has to keep fine-tuning his route to ensure all presents are delivered safely on Christmas Eve, and make sure there’ll be plenty of time for sleigh-snacks along the way!

When Santa wears his Navigator hat, maps are his forte. He’s been everywhere, and there’s not a road, a sea, a mountain, a valley, or a sky he can’t navigate. He is a bit iffy about active volcanoes though.
