The benchmark for opulence in Melbourne, Crown's Southbank operation boasts three hotels (including the ultra-swanky Crown Towers), a lavish day spa, nightclubs, bars, high-end shopping and – of course – the largest casino in the southern hemisphere, with 500 table games and thousands of electronic games.
Vistors aren't short of dining options either, with Neil Perry restaurants Rockpool, Spice Temple and Rosetta, Parisian diner Bistro Guillaume, burger-and-shake joint The Merrywell and pizzeria 400 Gradi among the choices.
For the kids, Galactic Circus is billed as Australia's largest indoor amusement park and features an electronic games arcade, laser tag and a bowling alley, while the fully licensed Village Cinemas showcases all the latest new-release blockbusters on its 13 screens.
