Description

The Sunshine Castle is a popular tourist destination on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. Influenced by a Norman architectural style, and complete with medieval additions such as a moat, turrets and a drawbridge, the castle hosts markets and 'medieval' displays. It is also used as a venue for functions such as weddings, parties, corporate events and children's birthdays.

The link provided leads to a page regarding holding a wedding at the Castle. Aimed at recreating aspects of an idealised medieval past, Sunshine Castle profess, for instance, that one has "the option of choosing...a magnificent medieval feasting occasion including heralds, knights and serving wenches, firebreathing and bellydancers or a beautiful string quartet."
