A visit to the castle - Ah, the serenity
It seems a little out of place, a large medieval castle high on the hill at Bli Bli just north of Maroochydore, on the Sunshine Coast, but the Sunshine Castle abounds in medieval history and is a great place to take the family.

It was built way back in 1973, as a tourist attraction, which it remains today, however, there's plenty of interesting history within the castle, making it very educational. During school holidays, they have activities for the children too, so visit the website to find out more details.
