Go have some Luna fun at Luna Park One of Sydney's most entertaining places for the family, friends, or school outing. Big kids welcome too! Luna Park is not just about amusement rides, it is also full of fine food, easy to get to and close to all of Sydney's main attractions.
What exactly is at Luna Park? I mean what is all the fun you can have? Well, I won't tell you about Coney Island; or the Wild Mouse and no, I won't tell you about the Ferris Wheel, Carousel or Dodgem City. What I will tell you is that you can get a GO
SILLY pass for $30 that will get you unlimited access to Coney Island, the Ferris Wheel, the Carousel, the Wild Mouse and Dodgem City plus a free game – what a great deal and what a great day to be had.
Friday night is Lunacy night and you can also get treated to a GO WILD unlimited pass for just $30 dollars (please note: Go WILD Pass is $35 during peak period). If you just love Lunacy all year round, you can also get an Annual Pass online for only $99 and go anytime you wish, or simply purchase one of the other many optional passes, such as the Yellow, Green and Red passes – see Luna Park's official website for further details.
If you are taking your children, or are in between rides, why not relax at the Luna Park Café, or Coffee shop. If you intend to stay all day, enjoy your lunch at one of Luna Park's restaurant (licensed and unlicensed). If you are just a bit peckish why not purchase a snack at the Luna Park Kiosk. If you would like to bring your own food, you can use Luna Park's BBQ facilities for a picnic – what fun.
Luna Park's facilities are child friendly, as well as including undercover parking, public toilets and picnic areas. Guided tours are available for those people who wish to find out what is available before sending themselves or their children off into the Fun.
All this Fun and a fantastic view too. With sweeping views of Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Opera House, Luna Park is the perfect place to unwind this Summer. Luna Park is located at Milsons Point, on the northern shore of Sydney Harbour and is a popular destination for New Years Celebrations.
Apart from being a Fun place to be, Luna Park is also a great venue for Birthdays, family celebrations, Romantic Fun dates and even weddings. Next time your teacher asks you what excursion you want to attend, tell them Luna Park. If you are a Tourists you should gather some of your friends to go to Luna Park – it makes a great backdrop for those amazing travel photos you plan to send back home to show everyone how much you miss them – more like, how much Fun you are having.
Did you know that Luna Park is a pre-World War II Fun Park that was constructed in 1935? Did you also know that Luna Park use to only be open for 9 months of the year when it first opened until 1972, when it was first opened all year round? Luna Park has undergone some Restoration over the years, but still remains one of Sydney's most wonderful and unique attractions.
Luna Park is now listed on the NSW Heritage Registry and has featured in several films and TV programs. Would you believe me if I were to tell you that Luna Park use to have a Mascot named 'Luna Bear, the Space aged Koala' – it's True.
Luna Park is absolutely free. So all you need to do is bring money to pay for rides and food, oh and parking if you decide to drive and park in Luna Park's parking spaces.
