Luna Park Sydney is an amusement park in Sydney, Australia, located on the northern shore of Sydney Harbour.

Luna Park’s 30ft wide smiling Face, as well as its flanking towers, have presided over the main entrance for almost all of the park’s 70-year history.

The eighth and current Face, completed in 1994 and carved from polyurethane, is based on Arthur Barton’s 1950 “Old King Cole” version.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.

    This is a great old time spot and a lovely capture too Michael … for those who don’t know its a top spot to park if visiting Sydney – they have an underground car park and then you can hop on the ferry across to wherever you want to go!

  • Thanks for the comment….and for carparking connection!
