AT THE LUNA PARK

The St Kilda Luna Park in Melbourne has been one of the city's most prominent landmarks ever since its opening in 1912, and is intrinsic to the suburb's resort character. Melbourne's Luna Park is acclaimed as the world's oldest amusement park under private management and is possibly the only one of its kind still in operation. It is typical of the type developed in America in the late 19th century, catering for the entertainment and relaxation of large numbers of people.

  5. Thank you for your comment back, Nick! At first I didn't catch on and thought there were two new people who commented, lol! But wordpress has this nice feature of giving the email of bloggers outside of wordpress ... Some of my friends are effected by the floods, so than it comes closer home. Thank you for your well-wishing:)

  6. I was fascinated with Coney Island, in part because it reminded me of all the trips to Lunar Park mum and dad did with us children in the 1950s. And the merry-go-round just outside Lunar Park.

    I hope you are wrong about our Lunar Park being possibly the only one of its kind still in operation.... that would deprive children everywhere of a great experience.

    Thanks for the link
