We’re officially on the countdown to Christmas and Charlestown Square are well and truly in the spirit of things.

If you’re needing to jump start your Christmas cheer Charlestown Square is the place to head with Christmassy vibes in every corner. From oversized baubles to larger than life Christmas trees, and returning again to the centre court is that Santa set.

Designed by James Dive of Scoundrel Projects it’s the biggest shopping centre Santa set in the Hunter region and is bringing the fun and magic of this time of year to life.

The 10-metre tall Santa set features satellites and Christmas themed sculptures, providing the ultimate spectacle for shoppers during the festive season. It also happens to be where your kids can have their Christmas wishes delivered directly to Santa in the North Pole.
