Tourist Attraction & Function Venue on the Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine Castle is a medieval themed attraction that offers a journey back in time. Built in 1972 as the Fairytale Castle to only display fairytale depictions and dolls it now offers an insight into an era of European history. The Castle is home to a quality independent toy store ‘Absolut Toys’ and the Castle Coffee Shop. The Castle aims to bridge the gap between the Medieval era and the Sunshine Coast’s history with a modern and innovative business approach.
