Integrated resorts are high-quality mixed-use destinations offering multiple world-class attractions, including hotels, restaurants, retail, convention facilities and entertainment. Gaming is only a small part of the attraction at the Gold Coast Integrated Resort and less than 5% of the gross floor area. Projects of this type are designed to cater to all age groups, nationalities and degrees of spend. They transform cities, providing many long-term employment benefits and significant infrastructure dividends for the community

WHY DOES THE GOLD COAST NEED AN INTEGRATED RESORT?

Tourism is a key economic driver for the Gold Coast and new and exciting offerings are required to compete globally in attracting international visitors. The Integrated Resort will be the largest and most exciting tourism project on the Gold Coast in decades. It will stimulate the regional economy by attracting over 1.5 million additional tourists to the Gold Coast each year.

Over 10,000 new jobs will be created during the construction and operation of the project. This means thousands of jobs for the local community across multiple sectors including construction, retail, tourism, travel, professional services, health and trades. With construction likely to occur after the Commonwealth Games, this means local jobs can be retained. ASF will comply with the State’s local content policies and plans to work alongside City of Gold Coast to maximise local job opportunities and future training programs.

Worth an estimated $3 billion, the project will provide an immediate and ongoing investment into the Gold Coast’s future, with benefits flowing across Queensland. This includes new job creation, graduate and apprenticeship opportunities, sustainable investment into the economy, legacy infrastructure and stimulation of the tourism industry.
