Riding the merry-go-round

Merry-Go-Round

Go up and down and round and round on the magical carousel located in Petrie Plaza in the Canberra Central Business District. This picturesque carousel delights children and adults alike with its air of olde-worlde charm. Most of the horses and elephants have names; even Pharlap has his place on the platform.

Beginning life in Melbourne in 1914, the carousel was installed in Canberra in 1974, and has been taking people in circles, and back in time, ever since.

Lots of Fun

Parents can join in with the fun and ride too. A wonderful old Merry-Go-Round that gets the kids imagination going. After 3 turns my daughter still didn't want to get off. Great value for money too.

I remember my grandmother taking me there as a child, all of my children have had a spin and now my younger nieces are going :) It was built in the 1930's and has had a number of restorations since...

Charming vintage carousel. The kids really enjoyed the ride and so did I. The painted animals are lovely and the carousel is a nice size.
