Treasury Casino is just like any other Casino in the World, if you want to gamble, then this is the place to come!
There is an endless choice of gambling activities, more than 80 gaming tables, as well as 1,300 gaming machines, that is not all though, the casino also provides live entertainment every night.
They do have promotions on all the time to suck you in, so check out the website for details when you are here.
What I did find, was that having a meal here was not as expensive as I thought it would be, and it was very nice. There are quite a few choices of dining areas, about five, I think, and they range from casual to fine dining, you choose the one to suit your style and budget.
Even if you are not into gambling, check out the historic building, it is Brisbane's Old Treasury building that was constructed between 1885 - 1889. The architectural style of this massive sandstone building can be compared to that of the 16th century Italian architecture, another beautiful old building to be admired inside and outside!
Brisbane's Treasury Casino is located at the end of Queen Street Mall. If you like to play cards or have the urge to hit the slot machines; the Treasury is for you.
I have been to a few casinos around the world and this one is "OK". The slot machines very from 1 penny to 1 dollar and they can eat up the money fast. So, beware to the novice.
Being the only Casino in the area, I felt that there were little promotions offered. Maybe I am a bit spoiled having gone to Las Vegas, however the Casino had a couple of nice dining areas as well as a buffet that seemed overwhelmingly busy. Later in the evening they have a band that keeps us tourists entertained as they empty your wallet at the BLACKJACK tables. Hotel rooms were nice according to one of my friends that stayed there, but a bit overpriced.

An interesting place to walk through - never rest my addictive bones at these things!
The casino is well placed, in the middle of the city - and walking distance to or from any of the major city sites, and there is a ferry stop just across the road.
By the way, the hands up in the second picture are people telling me NOT to take photographs! I'm no gambler, and I really didn't know the rules!
Brisbane's Treasury Casino is an easy walk from Queen street Mall, If you do not like gambling it is worth visiting just to admire the architecture of the old Treasury Building. At night it is a very glamourous building and well worth visiting.
On the night I arrived in Brisbane, most places were closed apart from some restaurants and this casino. Since my friends got the member cards, they could get free drinks inside the casino. So I was there, watching people gambling their lives away while enjoying my free cup of hot mocha. There is a balcony outside the gambling machine area, that's the best place of the building... for us.
