This is one of the most iconic attractions in all of Melbourne. Visiting Luna Park is definitely one of the best things to do in Melbourne with kids. Walking through the giant moon mouth sets the mood for visitors. Once inside, you will enjoy all sorts of carnival games, rides and fun. While you are the park, make sure to take a ride on the Scenic Railway Roller Coaster, which runs along the outside of the park. The coaster is a real thrill ride, and it gives passengers lovely views of Port Phillip Bay.
