Buy your very own fairy tale theme park

Themepark For Sale

You can buy so many wonderfully varied things on Gumtree. Second hand vehicles, unwanted couches, old bikes, toasters, stamp collections, fairy tale theme parks. Hold up – what was that last one?

That’s right! Currently for sale on Gumtree is the abandoned fairy tale theme park, Fantasy Glades. Based in Port Macquarie, this darker ‘Brothers Grimm’ version of Disneyland was a popular tourist attraction on the northern coast of NSW for around 35 years.

Scattered throughout the four acre property and nestled amongst an enchanted forest are Cinderella’s castle, the Old Woman in the Shoe’s shoe, the Crooked Man’s House, a Magic Dragon Cave and a creepy old Witch’s Cottage. And it could all be yours for the bargain price of $560,000!

Since its closure in 2002 the park has become a little overgrown. Its attractions are weathered and some have been vandalised. But even if DIY fairy castle renovations weren’t on your to-do list for 2015, this is still an amazing deal. For the land alone.

We’re talking 4 acres (or 1.6 hectares) of tropical rainforest right near the beautiful Shelley Beach. Do with that what you will; build the home of your dreams, open a caravan park, start an artist’s retreat, open a B&B. Or even refurbish the once loved theme park and reopen it to the public. The possibilities are endless.

With the real estate market getting harder to break into and many people giving up their dreams of owning their own home, this Fantasy Glades property is the deal of a lifetime. In Sydney $560,000 will barely buy you a two bedroom apartment. But here you have the opportunity to live a modern day fairy tale!

Of course, if buying an abandoned fairy tale theme park isn’t quite your thing, you can always check out Gumtree for more traditional housing options. But if you’ve been thinking about investing in property this really is an amazing opportunity. You never know, it may just be the secret to living happily ever after.
