Casino is a pleasant, easy-going town and a rewarding stop-off point for anyone travelling via the Summerland Way, the alternative inland route to the Pacific Highway. The town has a number of historic buildings that make fascinating viewing.
The first timber cutters settled in the area in the 1850s, and were followed by graziers, but growth was initially slow. Casino developed as a service centre for the surrounding grazing country, and the town has become known as "The Beef Capital". Be sure not to miss the Platypus Pool, below Irving Bridge, and the Casino Miniature Railway or Casino Folk Museum.
