With green pastures perfect for grazing cattle, Casino on the far North Coast of NSW is known as the beef capital. Treat your tastebuds to mouth-watering Casino beef at the town’s restaurants, bistros and pubs. Or visit during the annual Casino Beef Week, a festival the whole family will enjoy.

Next to the meandering Richmond River, enjoy walks in Casino along the river bank, including at Platypus Pool where you may be lucky and spot platypus, shy nocturnal monotremes, in the early morning or late afternoon. 

Casino township, Lismore Area

A fun experience is to board a miniature train at the Casino Miniature Railway for a ride through the splendid wetlands before skirting the picturesque Casino Golf Club, an 18-hole championship course. Amble through the town and explore heritage buildings, including a large number of Art Deco buildings.

At the Jambama Art Gallery watch Aboriginal artists at an on-site studio, browse exhibitions, and buy authentic works. From Casino, drive to Richmond Range National Park and enjoy the Cambridge Plateau scenic drive. You’ll find wilderness to explore throughout the Lismore region.

Casino is 30 minutes’ drive southwest of Lismore and 40 minutes’ drive northwest of Evans Head, a seaside town. The drive from Sydney to Casino is eight hours, best split into several days. You can take a train from Sydney or Brisbane to Casino, where you can hire a car, or fly to Lismore airport.
