Dreamland (Melbourne amusement park)

Dreamland was an Australian amusement park in the Melbourne suburb of St Kilda, which was opened on 2 November 1906. It was demolished in 1909, although the Figure-8 ride survived another few years.

History

In November 1897 Dreamland was opened in St Kilda, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. It was built on an area of wasteland which included a lagoon. The lagoon had been drained in 1870 and the site had been unoccupied for more than a decade.

Dreamland was demolished in 1909, but in 1912 Luna Park was opened in the same area. Luna Park is still open and operating today.
