Bold, brash and open 24 hours, Crown Casino is the beating heart of Melbourne's Southbank entertainment complex. The crown-emblazoned tower is a Melbourne landmark, and the casino is just one piece in a massive jigsaw of leisure, arts and recreation facilities on Southbank known as the Crown Entertainment Complex.
Dominating the bustling Southbank promenade, the casino welcomes visitors with dramatic jets of fire, water features and brilliant laser shows. In the casino, games include blackjack, poker and roulette, along with poker machines and VIP gaming rooms.
The glossy shopping mall leading to the gaming tables features the biggest names in fashion, from Prada to Louis Vuitton. You'll also find upmarket hotels, ballrooms, concert venues, cinemas, nightclubs, games arcades, food courts, bars and some of Melbourne's finest restaurants, including Nobu, Rockpool and Bistro Guillaume.

Crown Casino is on the southern bank of the Yarra River, on the pedestrians-only Yarra Promenade. It's an easy walk from Flinders Street Station, in the heart of the city – just walk across the bridge crossing the Yarra River and stroll along the promenade.
