While we were staying in St. Kilda, just south of Melbourne, we discovered an amusement park a few blocks from our apartment. Luna Park recently celebrated it’s 100th year, and we decided to explore it a little before sunset one evening.
This park kept a lot of it’s old-school approach, and one aspect of that is that admission was free, and you bought tickets for for just the rides you cared to try. Very attractive to the parents and grandparents we saw everywhere, I’m sure, and a nice surprise for us. For some reason, there is an operator on the roller coaster, “The Great Scenic Railway” and he stands up the entire time.

We saw some crazy clothing in Australia, but these were the pinnacle. David didn’t have the nerve to get a shot of the front, but that leopard print wraps around to leopard heads—one on each leg. This alone was worth the price of admission, and provided ample amusement for us for days, as we compared other garish outfits to these tights.
After the sun set, we left to get some gelato, but the park still had some pretty left for us, across the cricket pitch.
