Welcome to Luna Park Melbourne!

From the moment you step inside Mr Moon’s giant mouth, you are exposed to a world full of
carnival flair, from the rides that send you sky-high, to historical carousel rides, 
Luna Park has been the face of fun in St Kilda for generations.

Overlooking the famous Port Phillip Bay, this historic park has been a destination for Melbourne families for the past century. With 2012 celebrating 100 years of fun-filled adventures, Luna Park continues to surge forward with a generous mix of heritage listed attractions and brand new thrill rides to satisfy all thrill seekers.

The most famous of the Park’s attractions is its Scenic Railway Roller Coaster, a large wooden coaster that projects its passengers, at high speed, around the outside of the entire Park. It boasts the title of being the oldest continually operating wooden roller coaster in the world and the only one of its kind with a standing brakeman in control aboard its moving carriages. This world famous roller coaster will not only provide you with heart-stopping dips and turns, but also the most stunning views of Port Phillip Bay St. Kilda has to offer.

Luna Park offers a range of attractions for all ages from mini roller coasters such as the Silly Serpent, to nail biting thrill rides such as the Pharaoh’s Curse and Power Surge. A day at Luna Park cannot be missed when visiting Melbourne, no matter your age.

Luna Park also offers a range of function rooms to hire, as well as venues for kid’s parties, weddings & engagement events and Christmas party venues. Visit our Events page for more details.
