Luna Park Entrance, Circular Quay, Sydney, May 2017
Opened in 1935, Luna Park is the oldest theme park in Australia and is also home to one of Australia’s biggest tragedies and most haunting urban legends.
In 1979 a fire on the Ghost Train ride killed 13 children and 1 adult. Although the cause of the fire has never been determined, perhaps more haunting is the presence of a strange (and also unidentified) group of revelers who were photographed in Circular Quay hours before the fire with some of the victims. Dressed in pagan costume, an explanation as to who the group were or what they were doing at Circular Quay that day has never been established.
