This iconic park has been entertaining locals and travelers with a lively midway, carnival games, giant Ferris wheels and contemporary Big Top concerts since 1935. With more than 20 rides, including the dizzying Spider, hilarious Tumble Bug and the classic carousel, visitors to this Sydney standard are sure to have a fun-filled day at the harbor. Travelers agree the best time to visit is during hot summer nights, when city views from atop the Ferris wheel are most impressive and the glow of neon lights lends the park a true sense of nostalgia.
Luna Park is located at Milson’s Point on the northern shore of Sydney Harbour near Lavender Bay. It’s easy to get to by car, public bus, train or ferry. There are ride closures during various times of the year, so it’s best to check the schedule before making a trip. Park entry is free, and ride tickets vary in price and range from $20 to $40.
