Ambition is a noble thing, but in regional tourism it is definitely possible to be too ambitious. While Super Bee’s honey was (and still is) very tasty indeed, the addition of unconvincing fairytale dioramas and second-rate mini golf ended up cheapening the things it did really really well.
The old cliche about a picture and a thousand words has never held more true than at Bli Bli Castle on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. The T-Rex on the battlements says it all – if it’s more than 50 years old, we’re just going to jam it all in together and hope you enjoy it.
Over the last few years I have visited some of Australia’s weirdest, most wonderful and under-appreciated places, and written them up on the site Crap Tourist Attractions. I’m hoping that Far Out Australia captures the unfiltered passion and the uniqueness of these places without implying that they’re not worth the price of admission. They absolutely are.
