DON'T forget to leave out some milk and cookies for Santa tonight as he delivers millions of gifts to children all over the world.

If you and your children want to track Santa's movements tonight you're in luck; air traffic controllers, Airsevices, has released St Nick's flight path.

This year Santa will enter Australian airspace from the east and make his first stop in Australia at Hobart in Tasmania, before heading north to the mainland and criss-crossing his way across the country.

Airservices Manager Corporate Communication, Rob Walker, said that air traffic controllers had an important role to play in helping Santa navigate through Australian airspace safely.

"Airservices air traffic controllers are making their final preparations for Santa's flight through Australian skies," Mr Walker said.

"Santa's flight path is now finalised and pilots have been issued a notice advising them that Santa will be operating in the airspace on Christmas Eve."
