Shows are lacklustre and you need to pay extra for most things on top of your entry fee. Worth a go if you’re short of things to do but Sovereign Hill is far better.

An amazing family day with so much to see and do. The re-enactments were fascinating, the costumes beautiful and the castle itself, awe inspiring. Highly recommend it for anyone who has a romantic/adventurous/fun-loving bone in their body.

We don't have one as such, however we do have a comfortable first aid room you could use, or our admin offices. Just talk to any staff member and they will be more than happy to help you out and make sure you're comfortable.
