Are you looking for places to visit Santa in Brisbane this year? There are so many amazing toy, technology, and gift choices available nowadays that Santa and his helpers really need to make an early start on their meet-and-greets if they’re to know what every child’s wishing for.

But Santa is a magical tireless fellow who loves to delight children everywhere with his special guest appearances at community events, Christmas Markets, Christmas Carols and Christmas festivals. If you want to know where to find Santa this year check out our guide below!
