Santa’s Lil Helper is an augmented reality adventure that brings to life the City of Melbourne’s Christmas Festival.

As Santa’s Lil Helper, you’ve found Santa’s lost phone. It’s up to you to use Santa’s phone to retrace his steps, search for clues, and with the help of some new friends in the Merry Crew, find Santa and save Christmas!

Use Santa’s Christmas magic to activate sign panels located in Melbourne's laneways including Bourke Street Mall, Alfred Place, Federation Square, Degraves Street, Howey Place and Manchester Lane. Simply point your phone at the colourful illustrations and watch them transform into interactive animated 3D characters and worlds that magically spring to life.

There’s no time to waste! Come into the city from Friday 24 November to begin your Christmas laneway adventure. Participants will be able to enter the draw to win a Samsung Galaxy S8.

If you need help, Santa’s helper Elves will be on hand to assist at Federation Square from 10am to 5pm every day (7pm Fridays) until 24 December.

With high speed wi-fi at each location, you can you easily download and enjoy the Santa’s Lil Helper application by clicking on the links below to get started. Help find the Merry Crew and save Christmas!
