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.
