Ballarat’s Kryal Castle is reopening next weekend

Another Ballarat tourist attraction has announced a reopening date, with Kryal Castle set to resume operations on Saturday 27 June, just in time for the Victorian school holidays.

A legendary land of adventure, with knights, dragons, wizards, kings, queens, princesses, fairies and so much more, Australia’s only medieval adventure park will lower its drawbridge once again, providing family fun for the duration of the school holidays (27 June – 12 July).

Visitors can once again set out on their journey through the chambers of the Dragons Labyrinth and discover the legend of Kryal; experience the drama of a medieval joust as knights and their warhorses battle it out on the main arena; get lost in a maze; be enchanted by pantomimes; or learn the ancient art of archery.

Guests can even extend the adventure and sleep like a King or Queen for the night in beautifully appointed Castle Suites, capturing the glory and mystery of times past.

Renowned for providing an adventurous, fun-filled day within the sprawling village, the reopening is fantastic news for the region, with the venue ceasing operations back in March as it and similar tourist attractions (including Sovereign Hill) fell under new state government restrictions in order to slow the curve on coronavirus infection and transmission.

“We’re thrilled to be able to open in time for the school holidays – it’s a great boost for our hardworking team and for the Moorabool and Ballarat region,” Kryal Castle general manager Melissa Dimond said.

“Our team have been working hard to ensure a new and exciting program for all.”

Following school holidays, Kryal Castle will remain open on weekends between 10am and 4pm until September 13.

Tickets will need to be pre-purchased online to ensure visitor numbers are not exceeded and to avoid disappointment at the gate. The safety and wellbeing of guests and team members will remain the utmost priority, with some changes to the attraction’s operation to ensure everyone’s safety.
