The Star Brisbane

Update: 09-Mar-2018. T he new $3 billion world-class Queen s Wharf Brisbane integrated resort development is officially underway and expected to be complete in 2022.

The Star Brisbane casino development will be located at Queen's Wharf along the Brisbane River in Queensland. Construction is set to begin in 2017 with the property opening in 2022. Many details are yet to be filled in at this stage such as square footage of the gaming floor, specific bars and restaurant, shops, and vendors, total MICE space, etc.

Several buildings along a 10 block swath from Queen Street to Alice Street, and going back as far as George Street will be demolished, while many heritage buildings such as The Treasury will be refurbished and re-purposed.

There will be five hotels (three with 6-Star ratings including the Rosewood brand) and over 50 bars and restaurants. The current Treasury Casino will be transformed into a Ritz Carlton.

A Sky Deck on the 25th floor will offer spectacular views of the skyline and Brisbane river and will include a glass floor observation deck, botanical gardens, and several restaurants and bars.

An infinity pool will also overlook the Southbank and river.

Look to enjoy a rooftop moonlight cinema, black tie event space, and a 12 football-fields large public space (to accommodate over 25,000 visitors) across the swan-like pedestrian bridge connecting the Southbank to the casino property.

A new Lyric Theatre will replace the venerable but 30 year old, 2,000 seat Queensland Performing Arts Center venue.

Gold Coast casino focused on luring local 'whales' with Chinese high rollers locked out indefinitely

Gold Coast casino bosses say they are focusing on luring domestic high rollers with Chinese 'whales' the term used for rich gamblers not expected back in Australia for another year.

Key points:

  • Star casino's revenue will be down by around 12 per cent while international borders remain closed
  • The Star Entertainment Group's Geoff Hogg predicts international borders will remain closed for another year
  • Chinese tourists have been missed, as they spend more than $11 billion a year in Australia

The Star Gold Coast was busy when it reopened the doors to its gambling floors last Friday with another influx expected this Friday when the Queensland border reopens to interstate visitors with the exception of Victorians, who are dealing with an alarming spike in COVID-19 cases.

The Star's group executive of operations, Geoff Hogg, said hundreds of hotel rooms were booked, restaurants were full, and he was expecting more visitors from Friday.

It's a good milestone with the border opening and hopefully getting more demand into the city, Mr Hogg said.

We had a couple of restaurants open and The Darling Hotel [during lockdowns], but now to be operating a lot closer to full capacity is fantastic.

But the senior executive, who has more than 20 years of operational casino experience, said the continued closure of international borders would continue to impact upon their bottom line.

Our international [guests] make anywhere up to 10 to 12 per cent of our business, he said.

It's millions of dollars in our earnings and it's quite significant.

We all understand that that part of our market is not going to be there for a lengthy period of time.

We know that international tourism is certainly not something that we can rely on for at least a year.

When the international borders do reopen there is no guarantee Chinese tourists will return in the same numbers after China's Ministry of Culture and Tourism issued an alert in June, reporting a significant increase in racist attacks on Chinese and Asian people due to COVID-19.

The warning came after China's state-run tabloid Global Times published an editorial.

The Ministry of Culture and Tourism reminds Chinese tourists to enhance their safety awareness and do not travel to Australia, it said.

Tourism Research Australia said more than 1.3 million Chinese excluding children visited Australia in 2018 and spent $11.5 billion.

Mr Hogg said Chinese tourists were critical to Australia.

Anything that holds that back is concerning, he said.

When international travel comes back you want all of those markets to be available.

We have a lot of operators in Queensland, and on the Gold Coast, that rely heavily on those markets so you'd like to think that that isn't impacted.

Focus on domestic market

With overseas high rollers locked out of the country for the foreseeable future, Mr Hogg said the focus would be on wealthy Australian gamblers.

We do have some domestic customers that will be pretty critical and we'll be trying to focus on them to come to the Gold Coast, he said.

For us it's really about focusing on the markets you can influence.

Those who do venture onto the casino floor will have to abide by new rules that include a limit of four people per gambling table.
