Casino is a part of the beautiful Richmond Valley. Its sub-tropical climate is not only tempting to holiday makers but also perfect for its famous regional cuisine. Known as the Beef Capital of the Northern Rivers, Casino attracts enormous crowds each year for the Beef Week celebrations in May…the perfect time to sample the famous cuisine.
Numerous parks and gardens make this a picturesque town, on the banks of the Richmond River and only 45 minutes from the Valley”s stunning beaches of Evans Head. Casino”s countryside is richly endowed with natural beauty with the Richmond Valley hosting abundant National Parks and a huge variety of birdlife in the wetlands. A Platypus Pool near the town centre offers visitors a rare viewing of the usually shy creatures – just one of the treats in this Valley of Surprises.
