Michael Shadforth said the castle is situated on a 4,751 sqm block and there is the option to purchase adjoining manager’s and caretaker’s residences for a total land area if 8,242 sqm.

“We have already had a large number of enquiries about the Bli Bli Castle from across Australia and around the world,” he said.

The castle sales campaign has featured in local and national print media as well as the major online news and property websites, while WIN News on the Sunshine Coast were filming on site today. The value of the Today Show story alone has been estimated by a major media monitoring company at $182,000 in advertising space rate.
