Connecting with families is so important, especially at Christmas time. Telstra is helping families to connect with each other this Christmas as well as connecting with Santa for FREE.

If you can't get to see Santa in person, then reach out to him through a Telstra payphone to make sure you're Christmas wishlist is heard.

Santa's hotline will be open right up until Christmas Eve when he starts to pack his sleigh for the big trip around the world to deliver all the gifts in time for Christmas morning.

Telstra know it’s been a tougher year than most, particularly for our kids, and they hope that creating a special experience with Santa might help bring some extra joy and make people feel a bit more connected to the things they love this year.

How to call Santa

Telstra have made it super easy for anyone to get in touch with the big man in red this year:

  1. Head to any Telstra payphone until December 24
  2. Dial # HO HO HO (#46 46 46)
  3. That’s it! Just make sure you know what’s on top of your gift list because Santa will be eager to know.

As an added extra, by checking in with Santa through one of Telstra’s payphones you can help teach kids how to locate and use one if they need to in the future.

There are over 15,000 payphones across the country, which are free for all calls to standard numbers in Australia – so if it’s a great resource for kids, especially during emergencies.

In keeping with the Christmas spirit, for calls made to Santa, Telstra will donate $1* to the Salvation Army to help Australians stay connected and sheltered this Christmas.
