Broome Shire Investigates Viability of Second Casino in Western Australia

The Shire of Broome in Western Australia is considering the possibility of opening a second casino in the state and has hired a consultant to investigate its viability. The Paxon Group has provided a team of advisers which will investigate the risks and benefits of a second casino, including the social, economic and heritage opportunities it presents.

It is expected that the study, which will cost between $26,000 and $29,000, will be completed and a draft report presented by November 2015 with a full presentation made to council by March 2016.

Proponents of a casino in Broome suggest that it will boost tourism to the area, as well as creating thousands of employment opportunities for the local indigenous people.

“I believe that the casino offers opportunities for Broome, providing there is a level of community acceptance and private sector investment into this area,” stated Kenn Donohoe, Shire CEO. “That could open up opportunities for international flights, opportunities for other exports of products such as agriculture and aquaculture, both domestically and internationally, if the project was to be considered viable.”

However, Premier Colin Barnett states he was opposed to the idea and that the State Government would have the final say in the matter.

“Any decision on a casino is a decision of the State Government, not the local government and the State Government, at this point, does not support a casino in Broome,” he stated.

Currently, the only casino in Western Australia is the Crown Perth which is located in Burswood. The Burswood Casino opened in 1987 as the Burswood Island Casino. Since that time it has expanded and in 2010 became known as the Crown Perth.
