Trampled Rose

Recently a central Coast icon was sadly demolished. The Castle Rose was a mysterious monument in my local area, in the suburb Buff Point. The castle was a strange and beautiful anomaly amongst suburbia, easily one of the most interesting buildings on the coast. Known by locals through the stuff of folklore, the castle was attributed to ambitious creator Bill Muncke.

Legend had it that Bill was constructing a castle for his queen, his wife, bringing materials over across Tuggerah lake. Building started in the late 1940’s. Due to an injury he was unable to continue the building and his wife died before the castle was ever finished. Perhaps then losing the steam to continue on it the castle was sold in the late 70’s.
