2019 Santa Photos at Koskela

Koskela is proudly Australian and Santa really embraces this when he visits our store.

For our 2019 Christmas celebrations we have partnered with Elcho Island Arts. This Aboriginal community-owned art centre is located in the community of Galiwin'ku on Elcho Island Arts, which is off the coast of Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory.

Santa will be dressed as a fisherman to reflect Elcho Island’s relationship with the sea. His outfit will include a flanno, shorts, thongs and a bucket hat.
