First visit on our trip to Australia. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Though our daughter was too young for most of the rides she went on the ferry and absolutely loved it. We all loved the views from the ferry which were spectacular and worth the money. We highly recommend taking kids they will be thrilled

His smile went from side to side. His eyes wide opened as we came out of the ferry and the colours of the carnival became visible to him.

The teeth of the Luna Park "monster" was threatening to eat us on our way in but we manage to escape.

Kids getting their hair raised, families going around on the ferries wheel, laughing clowns, carousel horses racing passed you.

You stop to look at yourself on the magic mirrors, the image of your body distorted can give you a laugh or make you shed a tear.

Knoa couldn't contained his happiness. He run, he looked, he smiled, he shout, he jumped
- Mami mami looked - Everything was so wonderful to him, to me seeing his little face light up was the most amazing feeling.
There has been tough times for all of us. As a mother you blame yourself for anytime that your children don't get to live the life of a kid: innocent, happy, full of joy and play days. Today I'm giving back what I took from him and that is priceless.

The park is located in Milsons Point, on the north shore of Sydney Harbour. It's water surroundings make this place a peaceful dream land for kids but also often a destination for weddings and party celebrations.

We got there by ferry from Circular Quay, Wharf 5 and cost $12 for a return adult ticket. My son travelled free.
You can also get there by car, train or bus.
You can buy food there at the Coney Island Cafe, Lighthouse Cafe, Fish 'N' Sips or for more formal lunches or diners visit The Deck.

It's also a great idea to bring a picnic basket , find a quiet spot and enjoy the views! Great idea for couples.

Have some fun and forget about your diet for the day and try the parks's favourite Fairy Floss or Ice Cream, or both!

A great day for grown ups or the little ones.
I am not so much about the rides so perhaps if that's a big selling point for you could be a but disappointing. But for me it's just about a day out, the journey to get there, the laughter, the happiness and joy that surrounds the park.

Luna Park is dated and the rides are rather unimpressive, especially for the prices. The great big face looks fantastic from the ferries, especially all lit up in the dark, but that's the best bit.

We loved the ferry ride there, the views from the ferry were spectacular and worth the money.
Luna Park is getting a little bit dated and could do with a revamp, but, we still had a great time. The dodgem cars were so much fun and the spider (which we did twice) was awesome and our favourite. Food a little expensive but in all we enjoyed our visit, and as an expat, you would do it at least once more if only to relive your childhood memories.

We went on Sunday, it was lightly raining but that didn't deter us. We still had a great time, the tango train was really good & the kids LOVED Coney Island & the kids rides. We went in the spider three times in a row!!
The only thing that was disappointing was the food... The price was high and the quality was low.
All in all it is an awesome place to go & I will go back again and again!
