Staff aren't overly helpful and drink prices are insane. Nice for a small visit but not really worth going back. Good live music in the front lounge, but drink prices will steer you away. The Chinese restaurant is amazing and so it the little fancy restaurant out the front.

I think it's about time I write this review. We are locals from Cairns for many years. In our 50's, my husband and I don't go out to town much but sometimes we spoil ourselves and like to go out in style. Recently we went to the casino to check out the new renovations that had been done. Well, it... More

A nice boutique sized Casino with a touch of quality about it. A good variety of games, plush surroundings and good associated entertainment in small bars. Nice atmosphere !

Nice friendly casino with lots of card, roulette tables etc. Sports tv screens and a nice lounge bar before the casino which normally has live music. Built on 2 floors the best fun is down stairs.

It is just another Casino but the staff are friendly, the spots area is good and it's not just a gambling barn like the Sydney Casino.

The casino itself lacked a bit. It's mainly pokies with a few tables. The upstairs bar however has a small cinema for sports (and free movies on Tuesdays). It also has a pool table and a free coffee machine. It's well worth a visit if you're looking to have a cheap afternoon out. $2.50 min roulette (double zero) which made... More
