If you’re visiting Queensland, Australia this year, you’re not along. This one of the world’s most famous holiday destinations and when you visit, you’ll understand why. If you’re planning on doing some gambling while you’re in town, you’ll want to pay a visit to the Conrad Jupiters.
Owned by ECHO Entertainment Group, this casino had a partial opening in 1985 and then a full opening in 1986. The building has undergone two renovations; one is 2006 and another in 2012. With 65,000 square feet of gaming space, you’ll quickly find yourself in a whole new world.
Where You’ll Be Headed
As you make your way to Queensland on the Gold Coast, you see the Conrad Jupiters situated next to the Nerang River on Braodbeach Island. The building is massive because of the gaming floors and hotel.
Enjoy the riverside landscaping on 7 acres as you make your way to the Oasis Shopping centre while riding the monorail.

If you want to play any of these table games, take the time before you leave for your holiday to learn how to play those that interest you.
Some of the highest jackpots ever won at the pokies have gone to players on this gaming floor. Some of the pokies you can expect to play include:
- Pink Panther Returns
- Players Paradise
- Jackpot Jewels
- Black Rosse Cash Carriage
- Traditional Poker
You can find all the games on one floor, so you don’t have to leave the area.
Dress Code While On the Casino Floor
As with other casinos that are larger and located near big tourist attractions, it’s suggested to dress appropriately. You don’t need a tux or long evening gown, but don’t enter the casino floor wearing open-toes sandals and board shorts. The facility prides themselves on offering a glamorous and sophisticated atmosphere, so you’ll want to fit in.
Your experience at the Conrad Jupiters will include much more than just playing the pokies. You can take in world famous shows as well as some up and coming performers. Shopping is always a must when on holiday, so check out the shops within the building before heading out to the other areas that are just a short monorail ride away.
Some of the big names you can expect to see, if you’re there when they are, include:
- EmmyLou Harris
- Bobby Brown
- The Manfreds (from Manfred Man)
If you want to see any of the world-famous entertainment offered, it is suggested that you purchase your tickets early as many of these shows sell out fast.
The theatre also has movie nights every Monday, so you can catch the latest box office hit. You don’t have to make the choice between seeing a movie and going gambling. You can do both!
Hours of Operation
Unlike many other casinos in Australia that close at certain times during the day, Conrad Jupiters is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Other accommodations at the complex have various operation times, so it’s best to check it out so you’ll know in advance.
If you’re planning on staying in Queensland and playing at the Conrad Jupiters, you might as well book a room there too. Any kind of room you’re in need of is available, including a basic room or a room on the executive floor. Hotel deals and packages are available if you need to check into an all inclusive deal, or if you’re expecting a large party to join you on holiday.
Restaurants and Bars
What casino/hotel would be complete without a range of restaurants and bars to visit when you get hungry and thirsty from all that playing time? Choose from Italian cuisine at Cucina Vivo, Japanese cuisine at Kiyomi, or enjoy a relaxing café-style meal at Spinners. These three restaurants are just a few of what Conrad Jupiters has to offer.
When looking for food and entertainment at the same time, check out The PA Pub. This is where you can enjoy a burger and other pub-type foods while catching a comedian act, a game on the big screen and of course, life music.
Join the players club to earn points to use toward your room, your meals or other amenities the Conrad Jupiters complex has to offer. Visit any Players Club desk to sign up. All you need to do to start earning rewards, once you sign up, is to insert your card into a machine or give it to your dealer. Remember that the more you play, the more you will earn.
People all over the world enjoy fabulous benefits from joining the players club that the casino offers. So, even if you’re only planning on visiting Conrad Jupiters once, join the club anyway, because you never know if you’ll actually end up there again.
If you’re not so lucky enough to be travelling to Conrad Jupiters this time around, consider giving someone you know who is a gift card. This is the perfect gift because the recipient can use the card at the restaurants, bars, the theatre for concerts and other shows, plus many other offerings.
Don’t rush through your visit to Conrad Jupiters, really take the time to see everything that’s available. Of course, if all you want to do is spend time on the casino floor, that’s okay too, but with so much else to do and see, it would be well worth it to take a few breaks and see everything on the seven-acre property.
Anytime you visit a casino as big and luscious as this one, you’ll always remember the amazing time you had. The Conrad Jupiters is definitely top notch, but be careful because you might just want to make plans to return each year.
