Can you find Santa?

Meet Santa the Wrapper, Santa the Spy and Santa the Navigator, which are among the 10 enormous Santas – some as tall as 10 metres – that have popped up across Rundle Mall, the CBD and North Adelaide. Together, they form part of the Santa Course, which is ideal for kids and those who are kids at heart. A highlight is the 10th Santa – the recently restored giant Santa on the façade of the Adelaide Central Market. The Santa Course is on until early January.
