With Christmas just around the corner Australia Post is encouraging young Australians to write and post their letters and wish-lists to Santa.

Australia Post encourages people to send their letters to Santa nice and early so they receive a reply from Santa before the big day. Last year, 120,000 children wrote to the North Pole to let Santa know what presents they hoped to see under the tree.

To take part, letters should be addressed to Santa, North Pole 9999 with a 65c Christmas stamp on the front of the envelope and your name and return address on the back, so Santa knows where to send his reply.

Parents and children who have low vision can opt-in to receive a large text reply from Santa by sending their letters to Santa Mail (large text), North Pole 9999.

Santa Mail letters can be placed in any red street posting box, or a dedicated Santa Mail box which is located at Forbes Post Office.
