The harbor-side amusement park Luna Park Sydney has been entertaining locals and travelers with a lively midway, carnival games, rides, and big top concerts since 1935. More than 20 attractions range from the tame to thrilling, and although it’s small compared to modern amusement parks, Luna Park remains a Sydney family favorite with a nostalgic draw.
Take on popular attractions such as the dizzying Spider, Wonky Walk fun house, classic carousel, and giant ferris wheel. Or, try your hand at midway games for an additional fee. Multiple dining options are offered inside the park, from sweet treat vendors and casual cafés to bars and full-menu restaurants.
Admission to Luna Park is free, but unlimited ride passes are required to enjoy the attractions. Passes can be purchased in advance or at the gate and are based on height, as not all rides are suitable for young children.
Things to Know Before You Go
- Enclosed shoes are required for many attractions, so it’s best to avoid wearing flip-flops or sandals.
- Outside food is allowed, and picnic areas are scattered throughout the park.
- ATMs and lockers are available at multiple locations.
- The park is accessible to strollers and wheelchairs. All rides require wheelchair users to transfer out of their wheelchairs.
