Santa's Arrival and Jay and Dave's Toy Drive

The bells are jingling and the rusty Holden ute is ready - Santa is on his way!

POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER - follow us on Facebook to keep up to date!

Join us to welcome Santa on Friday the 26th November, with help from the Mackay Holden Club! Come in and get a photo with Santa in his sleigh and purchase a gift to put under the Giving Tree for Jay and Dave's Toy Drive.

Tell the kids to bring their pocket money to buy a gift for a kid who needs one! We will have a selection of gifts, valued up to $50, that kids can buy for $2 or $5 to place under the Giving Tree. Your kids get the fun of buying with the kindness of the Christmas spirit and less fortunate kids will get an awesome present - win win!

Kid's VIP Christmas Shopping

VIP Shopper Badge

Do your kids have a list of presents to buy and don't know where to start? We've got Personal Shopping Elves ready to give kids a VIP personal shopping experience! 

Book in a time, bring a list, set a budget, and say goodbye for 30 minutes. When you come back, the child and their elf will have the gifts wrapped and ready to go under the tree!

By appointment only - book on Facebook

  • Bring a parent-approved list of people to buy for (siblings, friends, parents)
  • Set a budget. We recommend buying a voucher on arrival (any unused funds will be store credit). Cash or a card with a set limit would also work.
  • Parents leave the shop. This is what makes it super special! Kids get all the attention and help they need without pesky parents around 😉
  • Kids help wrap the gifts. Wrapping can be half the fun!
  • VIP Badge included!
