History of Melbourne’s Crown Casino
Melbourne’s Crown Casino complex first opened its doors in 1997, a few years after running from a temporary location further down the north banks of the Yarra River – with an opening night made infamous by Aussie actress Rachel Griffiths when she ran through the complex topless.
The Crown was originally owned by property developer and multi-billionaire Lloyd J. Williams before it was taken over by Packed in 1999. Over the years it has gone several million dollar refurbishments, growing more luxurious each year. The complex now expands over two city blocks, or the equivalent of 510,000 square meters, making it one of the largest casinos in the world. It’s licensed to hold 2500 electronic pokie machines and 500 table games.
