Christmas at Queenstown Central

WHEN: 15 - 17 December | 10am - 3pm

WHERE: The Pop Up Store (next to Hallensteins) - Queenstown Central Shopping Centre, 19 Grant Road Frankton

Christmas is back with a CRACKER on 15 -17 December. Pop on down to Queenstown Central to meet SANTA, have a photo in the new MAGIC MIRROR, get your FACE PAINTED and make COOL CHRISTMAS STUFF in Santa’s Elves Workshop. FREE ENTRY for all things because hey, it’s Christmas!

This year we’d like to give Santa a helping hand in ensuring no child goes without in our community. The Salvation Army are overwhelmed with the need for new toys for kids in need.

Gifts can be purchased from any store (and any Shopping Centre), be for any age (from babies to teens) and be in original unopened packaging (and not gift wrapped).
