Probity and gaming

Probity

A Probity Code of Practice has been established for Queen's Wharf Brisbane (QWB) and independent probity advisers have been appointed to oversee the project.

Gaming

The operator of the existing Treasury Hotel and Casino, The Star Entertainment Group, forms part of the Consortium that won the QWB project. The existing Treasury Casino in the Brisbane CBD will continue to operate throughout the QWB construction phase (approximately 2017 to 2023). The existing Treasury Casino will close when the new world-class international casino facility opens within the Integrated Resort Development (IRD), expected in  the first half of 2023. The existing Treasury Casino will be repurposed to provide mixed used and greater public access.

At the QWB IRD, the casino gaming floor will be less than 5% of the overall development and is comparable to other IRDs in Australia and globally. The casino size and format will enable Queensland to compete effectively with similar developments across the region.
