Luna Park at the foot of the Sydney Harbour Bridge is fun central! Pass under the iconic smiling face and into this theme park filled with rides, entertainment and adventure.

Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre
Convention Centers
At first sight, this may seem like any other convention centre. Yet what makes this place special its support for local sports and arts. Basketball games are a regular occurrence, as are concerts by Brisbanian bands like Powderfinger, The Veronicas and Savage Garden. International acts like Stevie Nicks and 50 Cent have also swung by. Check online to see who’s coming next.

Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre
Convention Centers
Convene! Exhibit! PCEC is Perth’s prime hotspot for these activities and more. It hosts an ever-changing roster of congresses in fields as diverse as aluminium and Alzheimer’s. You never know what’ll be next, either. Storm Troopers queuing alongside zombies? Must be Comic-Con time! Aging rocksters standing in line, silver hair blowin’ in the wind? Maybe Bob Dylan’s in town!

Perth Arena
Stadiums or Arenas
If you build it, they will come. For years, Perth wasn’t a priority for touring bands due to its lack of proper venues. However, Perth Arena has changed all of that. This giant 3D puzzle of a building is the hottest ticket in town these days, pulling star names from Bon Jovi to Beyoncé. Check listings for head-banging gigs, stellar stand-up or nail-biting sporting events.

Luna Park Melbourne
Attractions
It’s midday at St. Kilda’s “Giant Face of Fun”. The sound of a summer carousel, the smell of caramel corn and the taste of candyfloss that’s like nibbling on a cloud. A wooden roller coaster loops the perimeter, the “Pharoah’s Curse" swings families into the air, and the Ghost Train spooks. Experience all the fun of a seaside fair with your whole family, right next to the beach.

SkyPoint Observation Deck
Popular Areas
See the Gold Coast in all its glory. This lofty observation deck has astounding views that stretch across the city and into the horizon. Limber up the stairs for the Skypoint Stair Climb, or better yet, zoom up in the lift. Wrapped around the top of the building, this gulp-inducing ascent is not for the fainthearted. The payoff is an uninterrupted panorama.
