We were recommended to see the rooftop zoo and it didn't disappoint.Goliath the star crocodile was being fed and such a good attraction.The microphone system could improve as we couldn't hear the girl who was only 4 people away from us.

I had a really enjoyable time playing Poker at the Reef Casino on a recent trip. I played on a Saturday night, they had 2 tables in operation. The dealers were pleasant and accommodating to new players.

My husband and I had a meal next to the Casino so had a quick go on the slots as we wandered back through to our hotel room.

Nice bar in the Casino, staff friendly and helpful, unfortunately the food! Oh Dear!! We ordered some food from the bar menu, while we were waiting I went out side to answer the phone only to see our food being brought from the Tamarind restaurant, along the street, up the steps, through the corridor into the bar, with no cover...

My partner and I went to the casino a few times during our week long stay. It is a small casino (we are from brisbane) but we really enjoyed ourselves! There is a variety of pokie machines and table games, nice cocktails and drinks from the bar that are reasonably priced and it had nice decor. They also do free... More

I do not go here often and after visiting last month do understand why. The seems to be NO dress standard - I could have been at the local TAB. The place just does not appeal.
