Crown Casino

 

The Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex is one of Australia’s most visited attractions.

It is located by the Yarra River in Melbourne. With over two thousand poker machines and three

hundred game tables, it is also the largest casino in Australia and in the entire southern Hemisphere.
The casino complex opened in 1997. It was designed by a group of architects including the famous

Daryl Jackson who also designed Fox Studios, the Green Square Project, the Australian Greenhouse Office and the Brindabella Business Park.

The Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex is one of the Southbank area’s major features in the central business district. The complex’s promenade is integrated into the Southbank Promenade waterfront. The popular and very dynamic Crown Casino began operations in 1994 at the World Trade Center by the north bank of the Yarra River. During the much awaited opening night, actress Rachel Griffiths ran topless through the casino. In 1997, Crown Casino moved to its current location at Southbank. It is open 24 hours everyday except on Christmas, Anzac Day and Good Friday.

Crown Casino features six main games: Craps, Black Jack, Pai Gow, Baccarat, Roulette and Poker.
Aside from the casino itself, the complex also has nightclubs, restaurants and fast food outlets, shops, designer boutiques, an electronic games arcade, a bowling alley and a Village Cinema complex.
