Great value meals but service was very slow. The meals were a good size. The menu is basic with good specials and vegetables with meals were a good amount.

I used the casino to relax inside because of the hot weather! but also like watching all the sports upstairs on the cinema sized screen. Also upstairs is a wildlife centre were I held a koala, would recommend.

We popped in and had a good look around but it was okay but not that exciting or glamorous. We decided not gamble.

A small casino, nothing really special. No dress code that we could see with men wandering around in stubbies and thongs. In addition, the minimum you could bet on the blackjack was $20!!!

Amazing casino. We went there sat in the big comfy chairs and watched the Premier League football! Drinks are really well priced and downstairs was a really good live band!

We went to the Cairns Casino while we were in Cairns and it was nice. The Cafe serves great meals and the prices were very reasonable, we were surprised. You can pop in for coffee and cake, or a full meal, or a snack, we ate there quite a few times, played a little Keno, we are not big gamblers.... More

It is a little casino compared to others, such as Victoria or New South Wales but is certainly worth a visit. Especially if you like electronic Roulette, it is safe to say it had more of this then the countries other casinos and they were packed too. Go visit and try it out for yourself, adults only obviously.

Not much going on here when we stopped in early afternoon on a Saturday. They have all modern machines but it is very small and saw no one winning anything but the casino is very clean and pleasant.
