Luna Park is `Just for fun!'. Sydney's historic 1930's amusement park was built on the foreshore of North Sydney in parkland next to the northern pylon of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The smiling face at the entrance of the park has welcomed millions of visitors of all ages. Entry to the park is free and visitors can purchase a range of passes from Coney Island to an Unlimited Ride Pass.
Luna Park rocket ferries depart approximately every 45 minutes from Circular Quay and Darling Harbour, to Jeffrey Street Wharf North Sydney - approx 500m from Luna Park & North Sydney Olympic pool, and 700m from the Sydney Harbour Bridge walkway.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do the rides have height restrictions?
Height restrictions are put in place for your safety and therefore cannot be bent for this reason.
I'm a yellow guest, can I purchase a green pass if I only want to use the green rides?
Ride passes, again, are based according to a guests height. Lower height ride passes cannot be purchased if your height does not match that of a lower height ride pass. For example, a yellow guest cannot purchase a green ticket whilst a green guest cannot purchase a red ticket.
Children under 85cm
Children under 85cm can ride the Carousel (in a carriage) and the Ferris Wheel free of charge with an accompanying paying adult (18+).
