Queens Park, Mackay


Santa will be returning to Queens Park, Mackay on Sunday 18th November 2018! This is a great opportunity to book in your PAW-fect 2018 Christmas photo with your four-legged friends. 

Santa Paws is a great way to add a memorable happy snap to your family photo collection while also helping RSPCA to continue rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming animals in need.

Local pet photographer Coffee & Hops is generously donating their time so 100% of all funds from the event go directly to RSPCA and helps the animals currently in our care. The festive season is the busiest period of the year for all Queensland shelters, so getting involved in Santa Paws will assist us to provide the best quality care to animals across the state.


We have been overwhelmed by the support of our community and all sessions for Santa Paws 2018 are now booked out. If you would like to get on the waitlist, please enter your details below, and we will get in touch with you, should there be any cancellations/no-shows.

Would you like us to call you on the day if there are no-shows?


Each image | $20
(includes 5x7” print)

Optional Add-On
Print-ready high resolution electronic image | $5


The photos will be ready for collection from Monday 3rd December, at the RSPCA fundraising location at Canelands Central (near Garricks Camera House).

If you have purchased a digital copy, it will be emailed to you on Monday 3rd December. Please ensure you check junk/trash/spam folders if you do not receive it.



This year, in an effort to avoid long wait times, we are implementing a booking system, with time slots from 9am to 4pm. To book:

  1. Select the quantity of images you want (e.g if you have two dogs, and want an image of each dog by themselves, and then together, this equals 3 images)

  2. Choose your preferred 30 minute session

  3. Complete your details, and select if you intend to purchase the digital copies of the image/s

  4. Keep your booking confirmation, and bring it with you on the day


Head to the registration desk (at least 15 minutes prior to your session time), and have your booking confirmation handy, to make the registration process as smooth as possible.

The lovely volunteers will process your payment and direct you to the staging area. Here you can get your pets ready for their photo with Santa, including any costumes/dress-ups.

Fiona from Coffee & Hops will then take your photo with Santa, after which you can stay and check out the market stalls.
