    1979 Sydney Luna Park Fire: A $1 million reward has been announced for information about a fatal fire at Sydney’s Luna Park more than 40 years ago after allegations the blaze was deliberately lit and linked to an underworld figure.

    At about 10:15pm on Saturday 9th June 1979 emergency services were called to Luna Park at Milsons Point following reports of a fire inside the Ghost Train ride.

    Seven people including six boys were killed in the blaze while riding the theme park’s ghost train on Saturday 9th June 1979.

    John Godson and his two sons Damien, 6, and Craig, 4, plus mates Jonathan Billings, Richard Carroll, Michael Johnson, and Seamus Rahilly, aged 12 to 13, were killed in the fire.

    NSW Police Minister David Elliott on Wednesday said meeting with the victim’s families convinced him more could be done to get answers.

    “Despite the passage of time, this horrific incident remains embedded in the psyche of Sydneysiders,” he said in a statement.

    “I am appealing to those who may know something but have not previously been inclined to assist.

    “You now have a million reasons to come forward.”
