Iconic medieval theme park, Kryal Castle, has become home to a brand-new BIG4 Holiday Park, set to officially open on Friday 7th April.
The closest Ballarat-based BIG4 caravan park to Melbourne, BIG4 Kryal Castle Holiday Park will expand the attraction’s current accommodation offerings to include 57 powered campsites, 16 one-bedroom cabins and four two-story luxury loft tiny homes which each sleep up to four people, with the height and modern furnishings offering a grand open feel.
With all campsites positioned close to amenities and facilities, the holiday park is perfect for entertaining families with a games room with Xbox consoles and bean bags, a playground for the kids, and a stunning lounge-style deck overlooking the Ballarat Cityscape. Better yet, pooches big and small are also welcome to take up residence!
Holiday-goers looking for a real sense of adventure will find the perfect home at BIG4 Kryal Castle Holiday Park. For the first month of opening, guests will receive 50% off entry to the theme park, enjoying all the medieval fun on offer including jousting tournaments, archery, quirky characters, Knight School, and magical potions.
Kryal Castle CEO Bart Hamilton says, “We are really excited to open the holiday park and hope that its unique location will help to draw in more visitors to experience Kryal Castle, while also increasing the accommodation offering in Ballarat and hopefully encouraging visitors to enjoy all the region has to offer.”
Only a 15-minute drive from the Ballarat town centre, the holiday park will help to fulfil the demand for greater accommodation in the area and will seek to boost tourism to pre-Covid levels. With bookings open now, the holiday park’s opening in April comes at the perfect time with a plethora of events hosted at Kryal castle including the Unicorn Festival from 7th-21st April and Smashing Pumpkins The World Is A Vampire Tour on Sunday 3rd of April.
“We’re thrilled to have Kryal Castle join our growing network of holiday parks, and feel they are providing a truly unique and exciting new offering to our BIG4 Holiday Park community. We know that BIG4 Kryal Castle Holiday Park will not only encourage visitation to Kryal Castle, but support tourism within the wider Ballarat region,” said Sean Jenner, Chief Executive Officer of BIG4 Holidays Parks.
The holiday park is part of a $5.6 million initial development privately funded by Kryal Castle, with the option to develop a further 119 sites on the eastern side of the castle grounds available for future expansions.
