In addition to the vast selection of casino games the venue also hosts live music, comedians and other entertainment options. Whether it’s a night out or a stay at the hotel, patrons are always well looked after and the casino has earned itself a reputation of being one of the best in Australia.
In July 2013 the Star Entertainment Group proposed the development of a new integrated resort and stated that if approved, they would move the Treasury casino and hotel to a purpose built venue. This would cost in excess of $1 billion and as yet, nothing has happened with regards to permission being granted or building works getting off the ground.
