Posted By: Kym Klein - 14 Nov, 2018

Meet Santa at Smith & Caughey's

Book a room or suite for the whole family

Take the kids to the Santa Parade

The magic of Christmas burns bright for kids - and the more they get out of it, the more they give back. For families visiting Auckland over Christmas, there are amazing memories to be made together.

Here are some of our top picks for making unforgettable family memories over the Christmas period.


Visit Santa at Smith & Caughey's

Londoners have Harrods. New Yorkers have Macy’s. For us Kiwi’s, it’s Smith & Caughey's. Make the magic of Christmas last forever with a visit to meet Santa, and capture a few happy-snaps, in the winter-wonderland set up at Smith & Caughey's. Friday 23rd November to Monday 24th December at Smith & Caughey's.


Christmas in the park

Watch the glint of fireworks twinkle in the eyes of your children as they watch, captivated, the spectacle of a sky full of glittering light. It is the final moment of Christmas in the park; a song-and-stage celebration of all things Christmassy. Saturday 8th December 2018 at Auckland's Domain.


Farmers Santa Parade

The Farmers Santa Parade is celebrating its 85th birthday in 2018, and this year promises to provide some of the best celebrations yet! Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy giant inflatables are being joined by Thomas the Tank Engine, a new Beginning of Time Dinosaur float, new Nutcracker Float, the Lost Boys, entertainment groups galore and Santa himself!
