Archived: Smith & Caughey's Christmas Windows

Christmas Magic on Queen Street

The annual Christmas window display at Auckland's iconic department store, Smith & Caughey's, has now been unveiled.

Every year their Queen Street windows are filled with magical Christmas decorations including beautiful hand-made puppets, twinkling lights, trimmed trees, and much more, all based on a special Christmas storybook tale. This year the theme is The Nutcracker.

Head to Smith & Caughey's Queen Street to get a head start on your Christmas shopping (or to get some wishlist inspiration) and experience a little festive season magic. Smith & Caughey's is also home to Santa's Enchanted Forest, opening to the public on 23 November and is open every day until 24 December.

Make a trip to visit Santa on Level 6 a regular family tradition and walk through the magical forest to see the very jolly Santa and his little helpers.
