Festival of Magic at Kryal Castle
At just over an hour’s drive from Melbourne, this castle is perfect for both day trips and weekend adventures. Dress up in your best magical outfit and prepare to be spellbound by a live magician performing roaming tricks. There will be daily spellcasting lessons, where you can craft your own wands and try out spells. Harry Potter fans can hop on a Nimbus 2000 for some fun pictures.
Then, venture up into The Wizard’s Tower and learn how to make potions. Visit the Magical Markets and find treasures to take home. If you’re up for it, get your fortune told at their tarot sessions.
Over the weekend, Kryal Castle will hold their popular live jousting sessions in the main arena. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to meet the horses and ask the knights your burning questions. As for otherworldly creatures, there will also be unicorn and dragon meet and greets.
After an enchanting day out, why don’t you stay the night at the BIG4 Kryal Castle Holiday Park? Located next to the castle, you can enjoy unlimited entry to the festival during your stay, or go further and explore the Ballarat region.
