The Star Gold Coast Casino is at 1 Casino Dr. on Broadbeach Island and is only a few short minutes’ drive or walk from Victoria Square Apartments. There is paid undercover parking for non-members.
But if you’ve checked into other hotels other than ours and want to use public transport instead, that’s always a good option. Catch the G:Link tram runs every 7 minutes or so from Monday through Friday and 10 minutes on Saturday and Sunday.
Tram service starts at 7am and ends at 7pm. Two stations in Broadbeach serve as your jump-off point to the casino. You can use the Broadbeach South Station or the North Station. You can walk to The Star Gold Coast Casino from either station.
Feel free to take an Uber or a cab if you’re too tired for a stroll. If you’re staying at Victoria Square Apartments, we recommend walking to the casino or taking a taxi, as it’s near the hotel.
The Star Gold Coast Casino is open 24 hours a day, from Monday to Sunday. The establishment is closed on select holidays, including ANZAC Day, Good Friday, and Christmas Day.
It features over 1,400 slot machines and 70 table games, so there’s something for everyone.
If you’re a poker fan and visiting Broadbeach in late November to early December, then you’re in luck. The WSOP Circuit Gold Coast is happening at The Star Gold Coast Casino from the 23rd of November to the 5th of December, 2023.
You don’t have to leave the comfort of The Star Gold Coast if you need to refuel after playing slots or winning at baccarat. The hotel features different restaurants and bars to satisfy your palate.
Spend a serene afternoon at the Cascade Gardens.
If poker and slot machines are not your thing, why not spend an afternoon at Broadbeach’s scenic Cascade Gardens?
