Conservation Management Plan
Luna Park Sydney Trust
With its prominent location on Sydney Harbour and its fanciful Art Deco façade, Luna Park is one of Sydney’s most popular icons. GML’s heritage advice helps sensitively maintain this state heritage listed site as it evolves into the future.
GML has a deep-seated connection to Luna Park, preparing its 1992 heritage conservation plan and updating it in 2015. The plan guides the day-to-day care of the site as well as heritage approaches to proposed upgrades and renovations.
A pastiche of styles and follies, the park has a timeless and nostalgic appeal. GML has navigated the conservation and development approval process for upgrades to many of its much-loved attractions, including the wooden Wild Mouse rollercoaster, the former Lighthouse cafe and Coney Island.
Luna Park is a rare example of an amusement park protected by government legislation; several of the buildings on the site are also listed individually on the NSW State Heritage Register.
