Luna Park Melbourne

St Kilda, Australia

Home to the oldest operating roller coaster in the Southern Hemisphere. 


This park features an iconic entrance and a mix of heritage-listed attractions including a carousel designed by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company in 1913, as well as other rides.

The most famous of the park’s attractions is its wooden roller coaster around the outside of the entire park, one of the oldest in the world. It’s also the only one of its kind with a standing brakeman in control aboard its moving carriages.

Located a little over three miles from the city center, St Kilda is renowned for its expansive view of Port Phillip, safe sandy beach, palm-lined boardwalk, huge range of beach activities,  parks and gardens, great restaurants, bars, and cafés.

The iconic entranceway can be viewed at any time.
