Sensory Santa Sessions Providing Kids A Sensory-Friendly Experience


We all know how hectic the festive season can be. Shopping centres can be crazy, loud, overwhelming places, so the opportunity to have a calm, quiet Santa experience is something some families can only dream about.

Well dream no longer. From this weekend, Westfield is providing sensory-friendly Santa sessions. 

The sessions offer children with sensory challenges the chance to have some special one-on-one time with Santa in a peaceful and comfortable environment.

Sessions are held outside of key trading hours and the mall lights are dimmed as well as mall music turned off to ensure a calm environment.

Sessions go for approximately five minutes with flexibility to run longer on a case to case basis. 

Sensory Santa sessions are being held on the following dates:

Westfield Tea Tree Plaza:
Mon Nov 26: 5:30pm – 7pm
Tue Nov 27: 5:30pm – 7pm

Westfield Marion:
Sun Nov 25: 8:30am – 10:20am
