Ballarat castle revamp complete

The doors have now re-opened at the refurbished Kryal Castle for visitors to the Ballarat region.

Just 8km from Ballarat, the forty year old replica medieval castle has undergone a twelve month renovation project to incorporate new attractions, function, wedding and conference facilities, as well as updates to its onsite accommodation.

The castle’s new key interactive entry feature—the ‘Labyrinth of the Dragon’s Sorcerer’—received $110,000 towards its design and construction under the Australian government’s T-QUAL – Tourism Quality Projects Grants program.

The minister for tourism Martin Ferguson welcomed the investment in regional tourism at the official opening and said the renovations will make a positive contribution to the Ballarat region.

“The new accommodation, conference and unique medieval style events at Kryal Castle will add to the attraction of the Ballarat region, appealing to a range of visitors,” Mr Ferguson said. “Improved entertainment areas will now play host to cultural shows and re-enactments, and boast a range of medieval-themed interactive and special effect experiences.”

Kryal Castle will continue to showcase its existing medieval features, which include a moat, drawbridge, maze, castle towers, and armoury, as well as performances such as jousting, jester juggling, and fire eating.
