Overview of the Venue

Conveniently located just 90 minutes from Brisbane and 30 minutes from Gold Coast airport, The Star Gold Coast offers fine dining options, 2 five-star hotels, premier theatre, deluxe conference spaces and of course, the non-stop action of the world-class casino. And, if that wasn’t enough, you’ll find the famous white sandy beaches of the Gold Coast just 300 metres away.

You get the best of both worlds when it comes to high-tech facilities that also gives you the option of chilling at the beach after a long day.

The Star has positioned themselves as the ideal location for your next special occasion and, whether you decide to have a Starcation for your birthday, anniversary or business conference, you’re bound to experience exceptional service.


Award-Winning Cuisine

While The Star plays host to many awards ceremonies, a popular Asian eatery on-site has won numerous awards for their innovative approach to cuisine.

Kiyomi won 2 awards in 2017 alone and has continued to delight foodies from all over the world:

  • Brisbane Times Good Food Guide Awards 2017 and the Australian Food & Travel Guide.
  • Kiyomi was also named in the Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Guide 2017

The Star Gold Coast also has other formal and more casual dining options for patrons who can indulge in anything from pizza in the food court, to fresh seasonal produce when eating at Nineteen at The Star.

Combine sublime sophistication with a cool coastal flair and the freshest seasonal produce from the food to the view and extensive wine list here at Nineteen.

Of course, if you are a true fan of Italian food, pizza in the food court won’t come close to satisfying your need for excellence. That’s where Cucina Vivo comes in with their authentic delights in a cheerful and relaxed setting overlooking the pool.

Between all these dining options and the Food Quarter that is available until the wee hours,  you will have everything you need to fuel your gaming as you try your luck at the casino.
