Luna Park is an amusement Park, situated at Milsons Point, on the North Shore of the beautiful Sydney Harbour. It is readily accessible by a quick and scenic 5-minute ride on Sydney Ferries, or if preferred, by city bus or train.
This park is one of Australia's most familiar amusement parks. Since February 19th, 2010 it is listed on the State Heritage register. This assures the park is protected and can be appreciated for many years to come.
This fun and exciting amusement park first opened October 4th, 1935 and has been closed and restored a few times over the years. After all the years and changes the well-known entrance still shows off its popular smiling face and towers even though there have been several changes to them over the years — eight different faces in all, with the last one made in 1994 which was based on the 1950s version of Old King Cole and made out of polyurethane.
There is no cost to enter the park, which is great for parents that prefer to pay for their kids to go on the rides while they watch and enjoy the ambience of the park. Usually, the park is not too busy and queues for the rides are reasonable, allowing you to get plenty of rides in during your visit.
If you really want to save money while enjoying the excitement of the lively amusement park, you can pack your own picnic. There are plenty of picnic areas in and around Luna Park such as Lavender Green located at the back of the park, Watt Park with its exotic trees, picnic tables and heritage theme playground or underneath Harbour Bridge you will find Bradfield Park, but there are even more to choose from. It might be best to ask the staff which would be the best spot to picnic in on the day you arrive as sometimes the beautiful areas are reserved for special events.
If picnicking is not your thing, no worries. There are many outlets and restaurants for every mood and taste. Whether you are looking for a romantic meal or a group lunch, the Deck is perfect. It has a wide variety of both food and cocktails on the menu. Sit back, relax and soak up the spectacular panoramic views that spread out over Sydney harbour extending to the Harbour Bridge, Botanical Gardens, Sydney Opera House and Circular Quay.
Fish 'n' Sips is a great place to enjoy fresh beer batter dipped fish and chips, pizzas, sandwiches, salads and more while relaxing and sipping on a glass of wine or a cold beer with your sit down meal.
If you don't want to stop to eat and are still hungry, you are in luck as there are more than enough venues for you to sit down at or to grab a quick bite and go. Satisfy your hunger pains with old time carnival treats, such as sweet rolls, fairy floss (cotton candy), ice cream and more. Stop by the Coney Island Cafe for a quick snack like a Turkish roll, croissant, danish or a variety of muffins or at the Lighthouse Cafe, where you can pick up hot dogs, hamburgers, corn dogs, and meat pies.
Luna amusement park and Coney Island Funhouse have a wide selection of amusement rides: wild and crazy rides such as the The Wild Mouse Roller Coaster or the Hair Raiser for those seeking thrills, rides that toss, turn and bump you all about and mild or romantic rides with gorgeous views like the Ferris wheel or the Carousel with 1,640 twinkling lights. There is also a Mirror Maze, fast, slippery slides and many rides for the children to enjoy and get excited about. Keep in mind that there is a height restriction.
What is an amusement park without sideshow games? Luna park delivers in this area as well. There are lively and entertaining games where you can show off you skills and impress that special someone or keep the prizes you win all to yourself.
