Speak directly with Santa from any payphone this Christmas

From now until Christmas Eve, you’ll be able to use one of Telstra’s 14,500 payphones across the country to call the North Pole and chat directly with Santa.

The tradition of calling Santa has been a cherished one, and last year, over 11,000 calls were made from Telstra payphones to the North Pole on Christmas Eve alone.

This year, the lines have opened early!

To connect with Santa, all you need to do is head to any Telstra payphone and Dial #HO HO HO (#464646).

Once you’re connected you’ll be able to speak with the jolly man in the red suit himself… so be sure to have a few questions ready and don’t forget to tell him what’s on our wish list his year.
