Luna Park Sydney Listed on State Heritage Register
Sydney's Luna Park, one of Australia's best known amusement parks, has been listed on the New South Wales State Heritage Register.
The iconic Sydney attraction originally opened in 1935, and was popular with Sydneysiders for decades. After falling on hard times it reopened in April 2004 following major refurbishment and restorations to its famous entrance face and towers as well as the Coney Island entertainment venue.
Formally announcing the move to list the site, NSW Premier Kristina Keneally stated "Luna Park is a Sydney cultural icon which is an excellent example of amusement park and fantasy architecture in the Art Deco style of the 1930s, which provides colour and life alongside the harbour."
Two other iconic Sydney landmarks have also been listed, the Queen Victoria Building, built in the 1890s and now home to a shopping centre, and Sydney Town Hall, built between 1869-1889.
Premier Keneally stated "these three sites embody the history and identity of Australia's global city, this will also ensure that they are protected and can be enjoyed for generations to come."
