Luna Park

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 Park in Melbourne in 1912 and Luna Park Glenelg, Adelaide in 1930.

The Sydney park opens to immediate success using rides relocated from Glenelg and continues to be popular during World War II. It is run smoothly under the management of showman David Atkins until 1957 and engineer Ted Hopkins until 1969. Following overseas excursions in the 1950s and 1960s, a series of new rides and attractions are installed.

The remaining 6 years of the lease and equipment of Luna Park are sold to the World Trade Centre who unsuccessfully apply to redevelop the site as a multi -storey Trade Centre. The principal shareholder is removed and the fun park continues to operate.
