This lovely heritage building—built in 1886 as, ironically enough, the state’s Treasury offices—houses a modern casino. Three levels of 100 gaming tables offer roulette, blackjack, baccarat, craps, sic-bo, and traditional Aussie two-up. Open 24 hours, the casino has more than 1,300 gaming machines, six restaurants, and five bars. DJs bring music to The Kitty bar Wednesday to Sunday nights, or you can relax in the clubby atmosphere of Ryan’s on the Park. At press time for this book, plans to relocate the casino to new premises in George Street were still in the planning and approval stages, so could be some time off yet.
