Kryal Castle Reviews
We stayed the night which meant we got to access the castle on both days. Plenty to see and do for the kids. Food options are a bit average with mainly fried food on offer. Be prepared to fork out add... more »
This was a great option just outside Ballarat as a stop breaking our long drive to Adelaide. We spent two days here which allowed us to spend one day enjoying the castle and another at Sovereign Hill.... more »
Great day out with the family. The story running through the day was Robin Hood and it was super entertaining and we'll spaced out so it never felt like you were at a loose end. The only downside is that there was no real shade for seating and prices were quite high for food etc. The grand jousting was amazing to see, and the staff were always helpful and friendly. 90% wheelchair accessible, only two or three places that couldn't be reached but not really a big deal. Arrive early if the show is on, as they take a fair amount of time to watch during the day.
The show they put on is great with a story line that is told over several short performances through the day which things interesting. The acting is good with actors remaking in character. The jousting done at the end is well down with lances shattering when hitting the opponent. We took a picnic and had it on one of the many picnic tables. Well recommend especially if you have kids
