Received a free Casino voucher when booking into the Scenic Southern Cross Hotel and managed to convert it to a $5 note - eventually lost it on the pokies though. Attendant at gambling table very helpful to those of us who didn't know how to play!

This casino is located in such an amazing building. Great atmosphere for both dining and playing. Courtesy van is an asset to this business and the drivers are always friendly . Only disappointing factor to the night was the attitude of tom , but overall a great night .

Great blue cod, stuffed mushrooms, deserts and even diet coke with raspberry. How many waitresses ask "would you like to peruse the desert menu" and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meals at the restaurant there, I had the chicken entree and my husband the ribs - then we shared the apple pie. Food well presented and very tasty... More
