Kryal Castle Adventure Park & Resort in Ballarat, Victoria officially reopened their doors to its NEW land of medieval adventure on March 2, 2013. Kryal Castle has been transformed for the first time since opening in the 1970s - to bring back to life this Victorian tourism icon which in November 2013 won Best New Tourism Development at the RACV Victorian Tourism Awards. An adventure park unlike any other in Australia, it brings to life a legendary and mythical land of medieval knights, battles, dragons, wizards, kings, enchanting queens, princesses and fairies. The multi-million dollar redevelopment restored all areas of the original castle including the moat, drawbridge, maze and castle towers, as well as refurbishment of seventeen four-star, luxury on-site castle suites, with hand-woven French and Belgium tapestries. Open weekends, school holidays and public holidays from 10 am - 4pm (latest entry 3pm)- prepare for excitement at the new Kryal Castle - there are plenty of wonders and medieval marvels for EVERYONE - little kids and big kids - parents and grandparents - alike!

I've brought the kids here a couple of times, but the visits were spaced out by more than a year as it's not the sort of attraction most would want to visit too often (or could afford to). It's pretty great for the younger kids,...More

Great spot for kids of all ages and plenty to keep the grown up’s entertained. The entrance looms down to awaken your imagination as soon as you arrive and the dragon is a delight. Live jousting, potion making, archery, plays and puppet shows are just...More

This place looks amazing visually well done. Arrived early so we could enjoy breakfast. Waited 40mins for coffee that was cold. Breakfast never came,so we cancelled our order. Not a great start to the day. Kids would be fooled by the atmosphere, but verydisappionted.

Yes it’s an incredible structure with great views from entry, the cost is good, yet food a little ordinary, little vegan. Some of the costumes looking a little tired, yet still an incredible castle in regional Victoria. Dungeon not for little ones.

We checked in on the friday specifically so we had the castle (almost) to ourselves as the shows are only on weekends. We chose a package including admission to the castle for the Saturday, but you can book just the suites.
