Santa the Snapper

Meet Santa the Snapper!

Sure, a lot of us don’t love having our photo taken, but memories are important. There’s something special about looking back at old photos from Christmases past. Santa the Snapper loves to remind people to take snaps and appreciate the small things (and tag him in the pic of course).

To get you capturing those happy snaps this festive season, Santa the Snapper has decided that he will be giving out his Special Snapping Surprises, for the holly and jolly visitors who take a photo with him this Christmas, and share to their social media.

Snap, Share, & Win with Santa the Snapper!

Santa's Special Snapping Surprises

From Friday 3 November - Friday 22 December, Santa the Snapper will be selecting 4 very lucky memory-makers, who snap a picture and tag @rundlemall and #thesantacourse on Facebook or Instagram! And these sur-prizes come just in time for this silly season - gift for someone else, or most importantly, gift yourself! Think a $250 Rundle Mall, $250 Haigh's Chocolates voucher (our tummies are rumbling already!), a $250 ToyWorld voucher (get that Christmas shopping done for the family!), and a $250 FunLab voucher, which arrives just in time for Christmas on Thursday 30 November!

Santa the Snapper will pick his all-time favourite snaps on Friday 17 November, Friday 1 December, Friday 15 December, and Friday 22 December, so make sure you've captured those Christmas memories ASAP.

He’s a big fan of Santagramming snaps of his Christmas pud, and scrolling through Reindeer Reels. When Santa wears his Snapper hat, his camera’s at the ready. He’s been documenting everything that happens in the North Pole for over a century, and if you’re lucky, you might get a glimpse. When he’s not having his photograph taken with his fans, he loves taking snaps to post to his Santagram, and seeing the Christmas memories everyone shares.
