CROWN CASINO FESTIVE DISPLAY

Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex is a large casino and entertainment precinct located on the south bank of the Yarra River, in Melbourne, Australia. Crown Casino is a unit of Crown Limited. Crown's current casino complex opened in 1997, after moving from its original location from 1994 on the north bank of the Yarra. It is one of the central features of the Southbank area in the central business district and the Crown Promenade fronts onto the waterfront as part of Southbank Promenade. The entire complex has a space of 510,000 m² which is equivalent to 2 city blocks, making it the largest casino complex in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the largest in the world.

The foyer of the Casino/Entertainment Area/Hotel Complex hosts lights shows daily, but on special occasions throughout the year, themed displays are set up and the light show becomes even more spectacular. This is the Festive Season display for 2011. The highly polished tiles on the floor reflect the light show above!
