About the Castle

The Sunshine Castle is medieval museum / tourist attraction and function venue. It promotes history, encourages education and facilitates unique celebrations. Built in 1972 it will soon celebrate it’s 45th anniversary as a Sunshine Coast Cultural Tourism icon and the most significant architectural landmark in Bli Bli. The Castle aims to bridge the gap between the medieval era, Sunshine Coast history and stages of Castle’s own heritage with a modern and innovative business approach.

A stand out landmark in this location this Norman style Castle, with medieval additions, complete with moat, turrets, towers and drawbridge is totally unique in Australia. The Castle is filled with medieval and historical displays, other cultural exhibitions and reminants of the original dolls and fairytales that you are able to explore at your own pace in a self walk tour. Wander over the drawbridge into another time and feast with Kings in the Great Hall or squalor in shame in the dungeon. The Castle keep is a 24 metre look out tower that offers stunning views from Coast to Hinterland.

An interactive and educational treasure hunt for children and the young at heart with the opportunity to get dressed up in themed head gear leads to a free treat from the King’s treasure chest. A recently expanded history shields tour offers detailed information on the medieval elements of the Castle and medieval history.

The Castle also hosts themed children’s birthdays, a special school holiday program, weddings, private and corporate functions, special events and festivals as well as school workshops. A selection of talented local entertainers are available to add flair to all of the functions including fire performers, belly dancers, wandering minstrels, magicians, theatre dinner performers, childrens entertainers and more…
