Crown Casino & Entertainment Complex
Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex is a large casino and entertainment precinct located on the South Bank side of the Yarra River. The entire complex has a space of 510,000m2 which is equivalent to two city blocks, making it the largest casino complex in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the largest in the world.
Children under 18 are permitted into the entertainment and shopping sectiosn of the complex, but not into the gaming areas or areas serving alcohol (with the exception of licenced restaurants).
As an inside tip; do not miss the fire and light show every hour on the hour after dark. Some of the best vantage points for photos are the King Street bridge or the old railway bridge leaving from Flinders Street Station.
If you are looking at accommodation near Crown Casino, or accommodation near South Bank Melbourne, Hotel 115 Kew is easily accessible via public transport, yet far enough to avoid the crowds.
