Housed in the historic Treasury Building, where in 1901, the proclamation of the Australian Commonwealth was read from one of the balconies, Treasury Casino is the glitzy heart of Brisbane’s gambling and nightlife. As the only casino in Queensland’s capital, visitors looking to strike it rich all cluster together in the game room, where poker, roulette, craps, and slots help keep the excitement at a high. There’s much more than simply gambling, however, to the notorious Queensland hot spot, as visitors will also find five restaurants, seven bars, and a nightclub, in addition to the adjoining Treasury Hotel that houses Brisbane’s high rollers. Eventually, there are plans for Brisbane’s Treasury Casino to move to a modern venue, but until that time comes and dice are still rolling in the historic Treasury building, visitors will still flock to the glamorous hub as they’ve done since 1995.
The Treasury Casino is located 25 minutes from the Brisbane International Airport, and is walking distance from many of the city’s most popular visitor sites. It is accessible via car, ferry, bus, and rail. For ferry, alight at the North Quay station; for rail, exit at the Roma, Central, or South Brisbane stations. There is also ample undercover parking on the George Street entrance next to Queens Park.
