Origins

The casino and hotel occupy two of Australia's grandest heritage buildings, the Treasury Building, and the nearby Lands Administration Building. The buildings are separated by Queens Park. A 700 vehicle carpark is located beneath the park.

Architecture and refurbishment

An early 19th century building with Edwardian-Baroque exterior designs and ornate colonnades, striking sandstone walls and six-story atrium, the historic Treasury Building houses a three-level gaming emporium of 80 gaming tables and over 1300 gaming machines and was opened refurbished as the Treasury Casino in April 1995. The hotel section of the Conrad Treasury Casino is housed in the former Lands Administration Building.

There are also function rooms, each with its own personality and design sense, available for booking. These rooms range from early 19th century designed to modern business meeting rooms.
