  • [Pictures] Photo TR: Luna Park, Sydney, Australia (10/15/09)

    I managed to sneak in a few hours of amusement park time during my honeymoon in Australia. Good thing my wife likes parks too!

    Nestled snugly across the harbour from the CBD, Luna Park is located in one of the most scenic places in the world.

    This place nostalgic to a whole new level.

    See what I mean??

    The similarities to Coney Island are quite noticeable, for better or worse

    On the plus side, plenty of old school amusement attractions

    Vivid murals point the way to their only remaining coaster, a Wild Mouse

    Placed on the rooftop of other attractions, space is understandably at a premium here.

    There are other signs that real estate is encroaching. Long gone is the aging Arrow coaster that used to loop on the hillside above the park.

    But what's left is a quirky little park in one of the most picturesque places you'll ever see. <- Go there, it's good!

      I saw the large, scary clown-head entrance way from across the harbour when I visited early this year. Thanks for the photos - we never made it there ourselves.
