Casino is the next town encounted in the Northern Rivers Region of NSW when heading south (or north) towards Lismore and the coastal regions. Casino is another town that exudes confidence and wealth. Casino is also a pretty town that has all essential services.
Casino is among Australia's largest beef centres. It is the regional hub of a very large cattle industry and positions itself as the "Beef Capital" of Australia, although the city of Rockhampton more rightfully claims this title. In addition it is the service centre for a rich agricultural area.
Each year the town celebrates Beef Week. It was cancelled in 2007 due to the drought. In 2008, Casino hosted Beef Week from 27 May to the 3 June.
Casino is situated on the main railway and Casino railway station is the terminus of the daily Country Link Casino XPT from Sydney and there is a daily service to and from Brisbane via the Brisbane XPT.
Casino is a great town and an extended visit would be an easy choice.
