An hour or so out of Melbourne, on the way to Ballarat, is a medieval castle called, Kryal Castle. A replica, of course, since Australia does not have a medieval history involving European castles. 🙂 But this replica castle is a lot of fun for kids and holidays.
You can wander around the various rooms and stables, and they also have a number of shows during the holidays such as; magic show, eagle show, a medieval whipping, jousting and knights battling.
Get lost in the maze, explore the horror of the dungeons, practise your archery on the range or relax in the coffee shop.
opening hours 10.00am-3.00pm
Adults $28 and kids $17
