  • The pantomime was hilarious. The horse show was great. The playground is new and keeps the kids entertained for ages. 
  • Very cute little castle... the entrance ticket is very reasonable too and my son love their playground and pony 
  • The place behind the castle is beautiful and really you can transport to the medieval age, however inside Castle missing lighting and I think they profit you little, thousand other things could be done. On the side of the patio have a maze, a church and several activities for children but which are not always available so the entertainment depends on that. There are also shows in certain schedules that keep changing them according to the day and the season so no one knows them before you arrive. If the weather is cold or rain, I do not recommend it for anything. It is entertaining and interesting to stop "in passing" somewhere. It is minutes from Ballarat by making it ideal to explore it as a previous stop in the road.

  • Would eat fun for my kids at 7 n 9 years old. Face painting was excellent and the potion workshop was the highlight. Staffs were friendly and helpful. Would be nice if there's animal feeding for the kids.
  • Clean and tidy room with amazing bathroom. Really convenient location to zip into Ballarat for anything. Everyone was in character at the Castle and I enjoyed being able to wonder around the grounds. They have a huge garden chess set... Loved it! Great service, my partner and I plan to stay again in the future.
  • It's a castle! A god dam castle in the middle of Victoria! Just go to see the sites if not anything else. Good for a family outing and the live entertainment is fantastic! There is a solid half a days worth of attractions maybe a full day of you push it out. It is a it pricy though.
  • This place is a must for anybody who enjoys mediaeval themed Park with its knights and damsels in Distress. Horses and Pony rides jousting pantomimes and other themed events plenty to do and see
  • I enjoyed my time at Kyral Castle. As a cosplayer it presented a beautiful and unique location for a photoshoot. It was a very fascinating experience and being able to witness jousting first-hand was amazing.
