Castle Rumble

Waterford

Logan’s best kept secret is Castle Rumble, a medieval-style 'castle' built brick by brick by Brian Rumble, an artist and sculptor (whose past projects include work on Brisbane’s Grammar School, St Andrews Church and Dreamworld).

This unique home in Waterford is open to the public on Sundays from 2 ‘til 5 (weather permitting) with tours given by Brian’s son Daniel. It is strongly advisable to check their Facebook page to ensure they are open before planning a visit.

RUMBLE CASTLE HAS CLOSED TO VISITORS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Castle Rumble Logan

Like the Addams Family house, the castle is creepy and kooky. Set on four hectares, the castle is guarded by gargoyles at the gated entrance. The gardens are landscaped with quirky sculptures and statues while the home itself is a mixture of tudor meets medieval with a touch of gothic thrown in.

The castle is complete with turret, leadlight windows and a courtyard straight out of the Middle Ages. The latter has been used in the past to host banquets, birthday parties and even weddings. Inside is equally intriguing with dimly-lit rooms covered in cobwebs and a thick layer of dust.

Visitors can only access the first floor of this four storey home; however the turret offers 360 degree views from Mt Coot-tha to Cunningham’s Gap. Behind the castle, there’s a vine-covered two-storey dwelling with a workshop of sorts on the ground floor, while upstairs you’ll find a bed chamber, stunning stained glass and intricately carved timber wall and impressive views.

Need to know - It is advisable to call before visiting as sometimes the castle is closed due to owner's commitments and weather.
