Sydney: Luna Park

Luna Park is an amusement park at the base of Harbour Bridge on the North Sydney side. The creepy Luna Park Face is visible from Sydney Harbour and made us curious enough to cross the bridge and investigate. Luna Park is a nostalgic return to boardwalk amusement parks of the past.

After our visit we were interested to find that the original Luna Park was established in Glenelg, south of Adelaide, before it went out of business. It was moved to Sydney as part of an effort to develop the north shore of the newly constructed Harbour Bridge. We visited the original site in Glenelg earlier this year without realizing its history.
