LISTING DETAILS

Bli Bli Castle was opened to the public in March, 1973. Bli Bli is an aboriginal word meaning swamp oak trees and is pronounced BLIGH BLIGH.

 

It is situated on a hard granite foundation on a knoll overlooking the Maroochy River at Bli Bli, in the centre of the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia.

In addition, seven fairy stories are depicted in dioramas. Also bric-a-brac, model crafted horse carts, toys dating from C1860.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland written by Lewis Carrol published in 1865

 The castle overlooks the Maroochy River at Bli Bli, on the David Low Way, between Noosa Heads and Maroochydore on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. From the tower block there is a panoramic view from 24 metres above ground level - not for the faint hearted.
