North of Hyrule Field is Hyrule Castle enveloped by the hatred and malice of Calamity Ganon. Central Hyrule is mostly separated from the rest of the regions by Regencia and Hylia Rivers, only accessible by the many man-made bridges. The province is surrounded by all the other provinces. The northern borders are shared with the Eldin province, the northeast with the Akkala province. Directly east of Central Hyrule is the Lanayru province, southeast is the Necluda province, south is the Faron region, southwest is the Gerudo province, and west is the Hebra province.

During the Great Calamity, Ganon's Guardian army attacked the castle, the town and the rest of Central Hyrule. Many ruins are thus spread throughout Central Hyrule, such as the Quarry, Hyrule Castle Town, Sacred Ground, Sage Temple, Mabe Village, Ranch, Hyrule Garrison, Exchange, Colosseum, Gatepost Town, Outpost, and East Post Ruins.

Central Hyrule is also infested by corrupt Guardian Stalkers. Many enemies such as Bokoblins and Moblins also dwell throughout the province, usually occupying an enemy camp. Since Central Hyrule was the breakpoint of Calamity Ganon's return, most of the Malice substance deposits are located there. Calamity Ganon is fought inside Hyrule Castle and Dark Beast Ganon, the final boss of the game, is battled in Hyrule Field surrounding the castle.
