Is there really a 700 year old castle on a hill outside Ballarat, just one hour from Melbourne? Kryal Castle is, in truth, a 40 year old theme park, but a well-executed one following a multi-million dollar redevelopment. Reopening in March 2013, this is Australia's only medieval theme park - a legendary land of myth and medieval adventure with knights, dragons, wizards, kings, queens, princesses and fairies.

Within the Castle walls is a medieval village of activities. On entry, visitors navigate the Dragons Labyrinth, a sound and light walk through attraction, which tells of the legends and story of the Land of Kryal. Visitors can witness the Castle Knights perform daring jousts, mounted skill at arms and sword combat on the arena. They can even try their hand at archery or sword fighting.

Indulge at the Tooth Fairy Lolly Shop, have fun with medieval outfits in the Kings Britches Costume Emporium, or see the Wizard mix potions in his workshop. The Torture Dungeon and Museum will fascinate and frighten and you can explore the maze, Knights Round Table Tower, Bravehearts Playground and more.

Interactive experiences, pony and carriage rides, animal petting, storytelling, demonstrations and activities ensure that Kryal Castle Adventure Park offers the very best in entertainment for all ages.

To extend the adventure, visitors can continue with a night in one of the Castle's 17 luxury suites, which beautifully capture the glory and mystery of times past, with stunning hand woven European tapestries, yet are as modern and as well equipped as any lord or lady would want. Perfect for romantic getaways or fun family adventures staying in the heart of the action!

Year round the Castle undertakes Education Discovery Programs for students, and is an impressive venue for Functions, Conferences, Special Events and Weddings.
