Built in the years 1870 - 1873, the castle consists of a four storey rectangular keep. Access to the interior is by tour only. The Visitor Centre has displays outlining the park along with an audio-visual show and is accessible for visitors with disabilities. Morning and afternoon teas are served in the Castle tearooms.
