Luna Park

Amusement Park in St Kilda, Elwood & Elsternwick

Luna Park opened in 1912 and still has an old-style amusement-park feel, with creepy Mr Moon’s gaping mouth swallowing you up as you enter. There’s a heritage-listed scenic railway (the oldest wooden roller coaster in the world – it stayed in motion during WWI when the rest of the park was closed); a beautiful baroque carousel with hand-painted horses, swans and chariots; and the full complement of gut-churning rides, with something for all ages and levels of adrenaline-seeker.
