Fun Fairs are always a good laugh and for most people bring back a flood of fond childhood memories. Visiting Luna Park at Milson's Point is like stepping back in time to the 1960's.
Most of the rides such as the Wild Mouse Roller Coaster (built in 1962) are quite old, which gives the park a certain charm. You almost feel like you are on the set of Greece.
They have all the standards such as a fun house, a wonky walk, dodgem cars, flying saucer, ferris wheel, carousel, fair games, and much more.
It's free to enter the park, you just have to pay to go on the rides. If you think you'll want to try everything you can purchase passes which allow unlimited goes on any ride. During the peak holiday period this costs $48 for an adult, $43 for non-peak. You can find more information on pricing here.
The park has quite erratic opening hours which you can see here, being usually open late on Saturday night and closed on Tuesday through Thursday.
Getting to the park is very easy with your options being bus, ferry, or train. There is also limited paid secure parking available. Click here for more travel info.
Why? You won't be able to wipe the smile off your face.
