PREMIER RE­SORT MARKS ITS 30-YEAR REIGN

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - FRONT PAGE - Kaylee Martin

ONE of the state’s most iconic en­ter­tain­ment cen­tres will cel­e­brate its 30th an­niver­sary this month.

Crown Perth opened in 1985 as WA’s only premier in­te­grated re­sort and quickly be­came an in­ter­na­tional land­mark.

The com­plex started with just 12 chefs, nine restau­rants and bars and 405 ho­tel rooms. Now 30 years on, Crown has 300 chefs, 32 restau­rants and bars, a 2300-seat theatre, con­ven­tion and gam­ing fa­cil­i­ties and just un­der 1200 guest rooms at three lux­ury ho­tels when Crown Tow­ers opens this year.

Crown Re­sorts Aus­tralia chief ex­ec­u­tive Barry Fel­stead said Crown Perth looked for­ward to cel­e­brat­ing 30 years with mem­bers old and new.

“Crown Perth has come a long way since wel­com­ing our first guests on De­cem­ber 30, 1985, and we take great plea­sure in pro­vid­ing a world-class ser­vice to more than nine mil­lion vis­i­tors each year,” he said.

“We can’t wait to cel­e­brate this mile­stone with a whole month of fes­tiv­i­ties.”

Some of Aus­tralia’s big­gest mu­sic acts, in­clud­ing Thirsty Merc, Reece Mastin, Daryl Braith­waite and Shan­non Noll, will ap­pear at Crown Perth through­out Jan­uary as part of the month-long cel­e­bra­tion.
