Demolishing Luna Park Sydney

On This Day ……. 31st May 1980

On 31 May, an auction was held to sell everything in Sydney’s Luna Park that could be removed. Two days later, everything that had not been sold (with the exception of the Face, Crystal Palace, and Coney Island) was bulldozed to the ground and burnt. The park was rebuilt by Australian Amusements, following design advice from Texas-based LARC International.
