Christmas is fast approaching and the North Shore’s most iconic shopping destination, Macquarie Centre, has revealed its exciting program of shopping experiences. Spanning luxury Australian brands, dining, entertainment and fresh food, Macquarie Centre will bring customers fun activities and special offers to carry them into the festive season with joy and ease.

The incredibly unique and award-winning Santa's Secret Garden is back this year and takes Christmas lovers, young and young-at-heart, on a journey of quintessential Australian Christmas landscapes from 20 November – 24 December. This one-of-a-kind living, breathing Christmas set, created from native and drought-tolerant plants transports guests from the beach to the bush, encompassing lush greenery with tropical plants and coastal pathways. Shoppers will pass through iconic Australian scenery including a boardwalk and glow worm cave to finally arrive to meet Santa.

Centre stage at Santa’s Secret Garden will be Santa Photography, Sensitive Santa and Pet Photos with festive savings to be had and patrons who book for their Santa photo this year, will not be required to pay a booking fee. Visitors also have the opportunity to register for a FREE personalised video from Santa! In addition, customers that lock in their photo session from Monday to Thursday of the first two weeks of Santa’s Secret Garden will also receive $10 off their package*.

Macquarie Centre’s extended trading hours will begin from Black Friday 26 November, allowing visitors more time to shop and enjoy special offers across its 360 retailers. From Myer’s Giftorium for an array of gift ideas to David Jones’ range of Australian and International labels for the latest holiday looks, through to the freshest food assortment from Woolworths, Macquarie Seafood and Tender Gourmet Butchery, there are plenty of stores to explore and a clever new tool to plan your visit.

This year Macquarie Centre has launched its innovative Journey Planner, a clever tool that allows customers to input their preferred shopping areas and gain insights around the centre’s off-peak periods, so they can shop in complete comfort.

The wellbeing of all customers is Macquarie Centre’s utmost priority and the centre is committed to providing a COVID-safe shopping experience including Santa photos. This year, additional safety measures have been introduced including maintaining a 1.5m distance from Santa, pre-bookings and contactless payments, sanitiser units available upon entry and exit, increased cleaning rotations will be implemented and limited hourly time slots will be available to ensure families have a safe and fun experience.

Making shopping this Christmas as easy and enjoyable as possible, Macquarie Centre looks forward to welcoming customers in store this festive season. For more information around Macquarie Centre’s Christmas program, visit the Macquarie Centre website or Facebook page.
