Are you spending some time in Brisbane and looking for some gaming entertainment? The Treasury Casino is located at the corner of George street and Elizabeth street within the Brisbane central business district. It was opened in April 1995 and is owned by the Star Entertainment group (formerly knows as the ECHO Entertainment group). The 24 hour Treasury Casino is the only casino within Brisbane city.
An interesting piece of trivia is that this 5 Star Casino and Hotel is located in a heritage building. The 5 Star hotel is located in the former lands administration building and the casino is located in the former Treasury building. Over 57 million dollars has been spent on maintaining, restoring and repurposing the heritage buildings and this includes stonework preservation to the tune of 5.6 million dollars.
In 2013 an ad campaign was launched to promote the relocation of the Casino to Queens wharf. This was part of a project to develop an integrated resort that would cost $3 Billion dollars. The existing Treasury building will be turned into a department store. The opening of the core integrated resort is expected to be in 2022 and the opening of the repurposed treasury building will be 2024.
