Covering the Goulburn and Murray valleys

Santa is waiting . . .

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas so it is time for children across Northern Victoria to put pen to paper and write their letter to Santa.

Santa Claus is ready for Tatura youngsters to get their Christmas wish-lists off.

Last Christmas, Australia Post delivered more than 150 000 letters to Santa, which all received personal replies, and children are once again being encouraged to post their Christmas wish lists ahead of his busiest night of the year.

Australia Post retail services executive general manager Christine Corbett said like previous years, Australia Post was expecting a huge number of letters to be sent to Santa in the lead up to Christmas.

‘‘Nothing compares to the excitement of a child when they receive a reply from Santa and we love being a part of that connection,’’ she said.

‘‘Christmas is our busiest time and Australia Post is committed to ensuring that all letters and deliveries make it to their destination.’’

Wish lists can be sent to: Santa, North Pole, 9999.

Don’t forget to put a 60¢ stamp on the front of the envelope and your name and address on the back so Santa knows where to send his reply. Letters can be posted at any Australia Post red street posting box or retail outlet.

Parents, teachers and children are also encouraged to check out Australia Post’s Santa Mail website at which includes letter-writing tips, Christmas education resources, activities and interactive games.

Santa and his helpers are getting busy so remember the sooner you send your letter ahead of Christmas, the sooner Santa can send a response.

Australia Post retail outlets throughout northern Victoria have extended trading hours during the week and at weekends right up until Christmas Eve and also stock a wide range of gift ideas for Christmas.
