  • We stayed here a few weeks ago & did the murder mystery night for our honeymoon & can't wait to go back! The staff were great and surprised us with a bottle of champagne at dinner (food was excellent ) & the actors are amazing and totally committed to their characters, it was such a great experience!! Thanks to the whole team, completely recommend!! Only slightly negative is our room which was a king suite was a bit average and over priced for the cost and did not look like the photos which was our only let down.
  • This place was amazing. Found it by accident and ended up staying the whole day. It is a medieval theme park inside a castle. You can stay overnight and have your function there, and does have all the modern day touches if you need. Shop and cafe's and plenty of parking.
  • Really cool place to visit. A lot of effort has gone into recreating the look and feel of a medieval village. Some great shows to see, especially the jousting and plenty of fun activities for the little ones.
  • Very nice, unexpected place! Wow! We spend 2 days/1night in this magical castle. Very clean room, really cosy and make you feel alone in the world. The park will take you in another time and the amazing staff are the best part of this week-end. They act so funny! They are really deep in their character and give the best of themself. If you want see something unique in Australia, don't hesitate anymore, visit Kryal Castle!
  • I went to Kryal Castle a few weeks ago with my family and we had a great time. What especially completes the experience is the amazing staff and actors that are so welcoming and funny. They really put the effort in to make sure everyone has a great day. Well done!
