The Treasury Casino, also known as The Treasury is a casino in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It also houses a hotel, five restaurants, seven bars, and a nightclub. The casino is operated by Star Entertainment Group.

One percent of the casino's gross gaming revenue is deposited in the Jupiters Casino Community Benefit Fund. This fund supports non-profit community-based groups and is administered by the Government of Queensland.[1]

Origins[edit]

The casino and hotel occupy two heritage-listed buildings, the Treasury Building, and the nearby Lands Administration Building. The buildings are separated by Queens Gardens. A 700-vehicle car park is located beneath the park.

Architecture and refurbishment[edit]

An early 19th century building with Edwardian-Baroque exterior designs and ornate colonnades, striking sandstone walls and six-story atrium, the historic Treasury Building houses a three-level gaming emporium of 80 gaming tables and over 1,300 gaming machines, and was opened refurbished as the Treasury Casino in April 1995. The hotel section of the Conrad Treasury Casino is housed in the former Lands Administration Building.

There are also function rooms, ranging from early 19th century decor to modern business meeting rooms.
