Crystal Castle and Shambhala Gardens is one of Nature’s sacred places, another side to Byron you must see.
30 years ago this lush landscape was a bare paddock, overgrazed and treeless. The King family have created one of the most unique and enriching destinations in the southern hemisphere.
These private botanical gardens filled with extraordinary crystals, sub-tropical plant life and daily experiences for all ages will provide you with a uniquely fulfilling experience.
