That entrance though! Kinda scary and eerie in one fell swoop! Ha! 

Luna Park in Sydney is so retro (it actually opened for the first time in 1935) as are some of the attractions in it but is part of its draw.

It’s a fantastic throwback venue and such a fun atmosphere to be in.

TRIVIA ABOUT LUNA PARK

The entrance to the park is actually based on what is supposed to be a smiling face but I doubt I’ve ever met anyone (sane) with such a manic smile.

WHERE IS LUNA PARK?

 Luna Park is on the opposite side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge from the Opera House (i.e. the Northern shore of the harbour).

At nights, from the Opera house, you can see the lights shining and glittering away in the distance (which is why we decided to go find out what was happening there in the first instance).

HOW TO GET TO LUNA PARK?

Take a ferry from the Ferry terminal (on the same side as the Opera house), take a taxi (that’s what we did on the way there though this might be the slightly more expensive option) or you can walk over the Sydney Harbour Bridge (which we did on the way back).
