Luna Park Sydney
Opening on 4 October 1935, Sydney's Luna Park is a rare surviving amusement park featuring fantasy architecture in the Art Deco style of the 1930s. The concept is based on the success of the first Luna Park which opened on Coney Island, New York in 1903. American entrepreneur Herman Phillips and others brought the idea to Australia and opened Luna Lark in Melbourne in 1912 and Luna Park Glenelg, Adelaide in 1930.
Luna Park Sydney’s prominent position and unique architecture holds a special place in the hearts of Australians and visitors alike.
Today, there are over 1 million visitors each year.
As well as visiting the amusement park visitors also enter for many other reasons, such as to enjoy the Ferris Wheel fine dining experience or to attend one of over 1,500 banquets, conferences, concerts, exhibitions, tourist groups, weddings, birthday parties and trade shows that are hosted each year. There are thirteen venue spaces, used for boardroom lunches through to 1000 seat banquets, 2000 seat conferences and local and international groups of over 8000 guests.
