Welcome to the new page for the Aquis Casino.. Please like this page and we can provide you with constant updates as this project progresses. Aquis will be like nothing ever before seen in Australia and will bring the attention of the world to North Queensland. It will be Australia’s only genuine, world-class integrated resort. Aquis Casino (‘Aquis’) is intended to be Australia’s largest, most exciting, innovative and world-class integrated resort. Aquis is intended to attract substantial tourism visitation from both the international market and domestic market. Aquis will compete on the world stage for international and domestic tourists for the benefit of the whole North Queensland community. The contemporary model of world-class, fully-integrated ‘mega resorts’ was first developed in Macau and is being implemented in a host of Asian destinations, including Singapore and the Philippines. For Queensland (and in particular North Queensland) to compete in this international market Aquis needs to provide a high-class international standard, with multi-faceted and diverse tourism facilities. North Queensland can win the battle for the international tourism dollar with an asset like Aquis. Aquis, on the edge of the Pacific Ocean at the Great Barrier Reef, and located just north of Cairns International Airport, will have the scale, diversity and international flavour to be without peer in Australia. Queensland, and in particular North Queensland, has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to take advantage of the substantial near term growth expected in outbound Chinese tourism and to position North Queensland as a tourism leader within the region. The opportunity is not limited to China however, and it is envisaged that Aquis will attract significant tourism visitation from all over the world. The key to North Queensland securing all the benefits that Aquis offers is to move quickly and with certainty, such that Aquis can become this leader in the region, and attract a whole host of new opportunities as quickly as possible. The Resort 7,500 hotel rooms across 9 luxury hotel brands; 155ha of recreation facilities, including 18-hole international standard golf course World class casino One of the world’s largest aquariums; A 23,000 sqm convention and exhibition centre and 2 x 600 seat theatres An environment conservation and management precinct. EMPLOYMENT IMPACTS The regional employment contribution of Aquis will be significant. The impact can be measured through employment directly attributed to the project and indirect employment in supplier industries that are attributable to Aquis. At the peak of construction (2017) and operations (2027) Aquis has estimated that the project is likely to directly employ around 3,750 and 20,000 full time equivalent (FTE) staff respectively in the Far North Queensland region. In 2017, an additional 2,825 full-time jobs would be created indirectly across supplier industries in the region and by 2027 Aquis is projected to create about 30,675 indirect FTE jobs in the region.
