Luna Park opened in Sydney in 1935 and it used to house the charming Mr & Mrs Luna, two larger than life caricatures. Their creator is Leigh Hobbs who after graduating from art school in 1973, had his first job - at age 21 - at Sydney’s Luna Park, an amusement park next to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, where he worked as an artist.
