The exciting, augmented reality experience The Gruffalo Spotters 2 App and Trail, featuring the much-loved children’s book character, The Gruffalo, is coming to Kryal Castle this year.

From 1st April, families can download the free Gruffalo Spotter 2 App, before setting off on an adventure through Kryal Castle for interactive signs that trigger the appearances of the characters in Julia Donaldson and Axel Sheffler’s much loved book.

Using the free Gruffalo Spotter 2 App, visitors will be able to take photos and videos of themselves with the characters as the five signs that activate Mouse, Fox, Owl, Snake and the Gruffalo – foxtrot with The Fox, have a hoot with The Owl, hiss with The Snake, make friends with The Mouse and get to know The Gruffalo.

The Gruffalo Spotters 2 App and Trail experience will be calling Kryal Castle home for all of 2024!

Can you spot The Gruffalo, Mouse, Fox, Owl and Snake within Kryal Castle? There’s only one way to find out.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
