Sydney’s popular amusement park with spectacular views of the harbour is just a ferry ride away (or a short walk from Milsons Point train station). Luna Park is one of two amusement parks in the world that are protected by government legislation; several of the buildings on the site are also listed on the NSW State Heritage Register. Several movies and television shows were shot here. If you are after a fun day out with the kids, spend a day at Luna Park. Check out a list of all rides in operation here, fun is guaranteed – not only for the little ones.
Home to exotic and native species including native animals, Taronga Zoo is an experience not to be missed. Enjoy the Free-Flight Bird Show overlooking the magnificent Sydney Harbour, featuring some of the world’s most spectacular birds, or challenge yourself on Taronga’s exciting new sky high adventure, Wild Ropes. It is always best to start your tour of the Zoo from the top entrance and once you reach the bottom you can catch the Zoo Sky Safari chair lift to take you to the top again offering great views along the way.
