Empire Bay/Bensville Rural Fire Service



Empire Bay Bush Fire Brigade brings Santa to the Island


Each year - fires & weather permitting - the Empire Bay/Bensville Rural Fire Brigade take Santa for a cruise around the local areas that they care for, and maybe raise some funds for their fire-fighting activities. 


  • On Thursday 13th, Santa will be in Bensville and…
  • On Saturday 15th, Santa will be in Empire Bay.  

BUT… on Friday 14th, Santa will be driven around the streets of St Huberts Island in a very vintage car, or a shiny fire-engine. 

Other than waving, ho-ho-ing, wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and distributing lollies to the little ones, there may be an opportunity to make a gold coin donation.
