We found this quite hard to locate as it says it’s located near Emu bay but is quite the drive from there. No signage. Very run down, tools left laying around everywhere. No one was to be seen. Saw it all in no more than...More

Few days on Kangaroo Island, but we have to visit this place after all we heard about. George and his castle are something completely different from any other experience we lived. It was just as if we felt younger, almost child, again!

Stopped by as part of our night tour. George takes contributions to help offset the electricity costs. Hard to conceive of a man his age setting up all these lights. Looks like his lifetime collection is on display. Hard to describe but worth a stop...More

Every now and then in a rural corner of Australia you run across something fantastic. I was driving by when I saw George's Castle. It's creative, imaginative, and fun - for kids of all ages. It was morning when I stopped so I didn't think...More
