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.

  1. I spent a lot of Sundays on the St Kilda carousels etc in the 1950s and early 1960s, but always with parental supervision. My parents feared that some people (eg sailors) were a bit untrustworthy back then ha ha.

  2. Great photos of a lovely amusement park. It has a feel of the past, perhaps the 1930s.

  3. How awesome that it's still operating. It looks like a lot of fun.
