History of Brisbane’s Treasury Casino
The Treasury Casino first opened its doors in 1995, but the building it is housed in has a much richer history. The venue got its name from its position within the old state treasury building, which was once a site of a two story military barracks before construction of the government treasury building began in 1886 and underwent two more stages of construction in 1922 and 1928. The design of the building is inspired by 16th Century Italian architecture and as a heritage listed site, it retains its historic grandeur to this day.
The Treasury Hotel was constructed in the nearby old Lands Administration Building which was first built between 1885 and 1905. Between 1905 and 1930 the Lands Administration Building served as the Queensland Art Gallery and also held the offices of the Queensland State Premiers up until the early 1970’s. The building remains the finest example of Edwardian Baroque architecture and design you’ll find in Queensland.
In the early 90’s both buildings were leased by Jupiter’s Limited and underwent a huge heritage conservation project before opening doors to the public in 1995. Over the years over $57 million has been spent on restoring and maintaining the historic assets of both buildings. Today The Treasury Casino & Hotel Brisbane is owned by ECHO Entertainment Group.
