Crown's casino complex opened in 1997, after moving from a temporary location that opened in 1994 and was on 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. Children under 18 are permitted into the entertainment and shopping section of complex, but not into the gaming area or areas serving alcohol. The entire complex has a space of 510,000 m² 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.
Although I don't gamble, we occasionally go for a stroll in this complex, for the photo opportunities, if for nothing else.
