Casino Wrest Point Hotel was the first official casino in Australia. Its opening was preceded by a state referendum, in which supporters of an entertainment venue won with a small margin.
The casino opened on February 10, 1973, and since then the seventeen-story tower of the hotel has become an easily recognizable city landmark. With its 64 meters, it remains today the highest building in Hobart.
In the early 1970s, the natural beauty of Tasmania was still unknown in the rest of the world, so the construction of a casino became a kind of publicity stunt aimed at attracting tourists. I must say that the idea was completely successful. In the first five years alone, about 5 million guests have been here, and nearly 100 international conferences have been held.
5 restaurants and 6 bars await visitors to the complex. Rotating restaurant on the top floor – the dream of any gourmet. It serves exquisite French cuisine, complemented by light notes of Tasmanian flavor. The famous Birdcage Bar will pamper you with the best cocktails and live music in Tasmania.
Tasmania Island belongs to Australia and is its state. In recent decades, Tasmania has sought to become an attractive destination for tourists.
