Aquis Resort at the Great Barrier Reef Pty Ltd, a company led by China-based business tycoon Tony Fung, is planning on building a $3.74 billion casino and resort in Cairns City, Queensland, Australia.

The plan is to build the resort and casino on over 343 hectare of land, located close to Great Barrier Reef. The resort will include an international class casino with 750 tables and 1,500 slot machines, one of the world's largest aquariums and a 25,000-seat sports stadium, nine luxury hotels with 3750 hotel rooms, 1200 apartments, 135 villas, two 2,500-seat theatres, an 18 hole golf course, a 45,000 square metres convention and exhibition centre, and more.

If everything goes according to plan, the project will be ready in 2018 and would generate 9,300 jobs while being build and 10,000 jobs when it's ready. According to local news papers, Tony Fung has secured a Coordinated Project status from the Queensland Government.

Well that's all fine and dandy as long as they can keep all those potential tourists away from the reef...

That's an extremely delicate and sensitive undersea region to any disturbances. Last thing you need is a bunch of drunks tossing their garbage and cigarette butts over the side of tourboats and yachts...

I hope the Australian government can impose some heavy restrictions to prevent the reef from being over-run with yahoos... Confused

Now that's some serious money to be spending 3.74 BILLION dollars to spend on a casino. This had ought to be one of the biggest, nicest and most opportunist casinos ever to be built. Wonder if they'll get any poker tournaments to sign on.

By that preview pic i can tell that it's worth all the money!

Plus australia it's a country in which gambling it's not so popular so the market can grow really good. I'm really curious to see how they will built it in just 5 years.

This sounds a huge project and no doubt they have done quite substantial market research and have a view that they can make a lots of money out of it,,... suppose the main aim has to be to protect he reef and this will no doubt inject cash into the area which will work to protect the reef.
