Sunshine Castle authentically in ruins!
The Castle is operating on borrowed time. Come and enjoy our mini tour today!
After almost 50 years of service to this community, in January 2020 the Castle was forced to close part of it‘s original buildings and now restricts access to offer a mini tour, with history shields, armour displays in it‘s atmospheric courtyard and the iconic dolls & fairytales.. The Castle is also home to a quality independent toy store ‘Absolut Toys’ and the Castle Coffee Shop.
Whilst parts of the Castle are authentically in ruins, the magic of it‘s offerings are still alive. Unique in Queensland and Australia it allows visitors an access to European history that offers education and sparks imagination to all who visit.
Current owners are busy working on a happy ever after and appreciate your support.
