THE REINVENTION OF KRYAL CASTLE UNDERWAY

23 /05/ 2012 Comments are Closed

Works have commenced on the redevelopment of Kryal Castle, Australia’s unique medieval castle located just out of Ballarat. The redevelopment will include an array of entertaining cultural shows and re-enactments, and interactive and special effect experiences for the whole family to enjoy – all set in a time of knights, chivalry, dragons and wizards.

Australian multi-national corporation The Sanderson Group was recently appointed to undertake the redevelopment master planning works at the castle. The Sanderson Group has more than 23 years of experience in the design and construction of high quality, themed tourist attractions and global operations spanning from the Middle East through to the Asia Pacific. It has also recently completed Universal Studios in Singapore, and is currently working on several projects throughout south east and central Asia.

In addition, Castle Suites, designed by Melbourne-based design and architectural company DC Group, are being refurbished and constructed. Castle Suites, along with updated functions and event spaces such as the Tyrants Tavern and the Knights Round Table Tower, are scheduled to open in coming months.

The larger interactive, educational and entertaining redeveloped Medieval Castle – Adventure and Theme Park experience will be relaunched at a later time.

“We are committed to the redevelopment of Kryal Castle as an iconic and unique adventure and theme park, accommodation, function and special event venue. It will be very entertaining and deliver a high quality tourism product for the region and the state,” says Castle Tourism and Entertainment Director Erin Joyce.

The castle is listed on the Austrade and Tourism Australia Australian Tourism Investment Guide, a register of 80 investment-ready and proposed tourism projects around the country.

Additional investment would activate stages two and three of the castle’s redevelopment master plan, produced by The Sanderson Group, and could include additional themed accommodation outside the castle walls and ‘white knuckle’ ride experiences.
