Winter Theme – Knight’s of Fire

Dates – 26 June to 11 July 2021


Please check our Facebook page for the latest information on opening hour and times

Open everyday of the school holidays from 10am to 4pm

Ignite your imagination at Kryal Castle.  You will be enthralled by our Knights of Fire and Snow Queen Neva.  The highlight of the program will be the spectacular Joust of a fiery clash of flaming lances and swords on Kryal Castle’s main arena daily.

Journey through the chambers of the Dragon Labyrinth; get lost in the maze; be enchanted by pantomimes; visit our wizard in his workshop; join in a potion-making workshop; or learn the ancient art of archery.  Attend a puppet-making workshop, or test your skills of combat at Knights Training – where you could learn to be Kryals new hero against the darkest depths of winter’s powerful forces.

Warm yourself at one of the braziers around the grounds as you enjoy the roving entertainment or make your way to our castle Abbey for pantomimes and puppetry, warm yourself by the fire while the kids are entertained.

Why not extend your stay and book a family stay and play package at Kryal Castle to immerse yourself in all that Ballarat has to offer?
