With so much happening at The Star Gold Coast, we’re working to ensure you’re kept up to date. We’ve answered a few of the most commonly-asked questions below, and – but will continue to keep you updated with news and developments as our property evolves
What is currently underway at The Star Gold Coast?
The Star Gold Coast is undergoing a $345 million transformation, to upgrade our existing facilities and build a new luxury six-star tower.
What will be new on property as part of the current works?
Guests can already experience the benefits of our transformation, with the completion of three new restaurants, a luxury poolside experience, newly refurbished hotel rooms and re-energised gaming facilities
The current investment will see our almost 600 rooms refurbished by the end of 2016, as well as the significant expansion of our food and beverage offering, and increased retail and entertainment options.
Construction of our new six-star tower is well underway at the front of the property and when complete, will include VIP gaming facilities, premium dining restaurants and unrivalled six-star accommodation. The 17-storey hotel is expected to be fully operational in time for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
What is the proposed development schedule?
Can I still stay and play at The Star?
While some areas may be closed during the upgrade, you can still choose from a wide array of award-winning restaurants and great bars, as well as the casino, theatre, hotel and conferencing facilities.
Will there be disruption during my visit?
As with all investment projects there comes some short term disruption but we assure you the end result will be well worth it. Our team has carefully phased the projects so you can see the property literally change right before your eyes, while ensuring you can still enjoy all the fantastic facilities we have on offer. Our restaurants, hotel, theatre and casino will continue to operate as usual while the redevelopment is underway, though some facilities or entry points may be temporarily located in a different area.
How many jobs will be created?
It is expected the proposed new 200 metre hotel and apartment tower, and 17-storey six-star hotel where works are already underway, could generate in total more than 1000 construction jobs.
Pending approval of the proposed new tower, The Star's workforce could also increase to around 2300 employees once the projects were complete and the new areas operational.
Who do I contact for recruitment information?
All job opportunities can be found on our careers page.
Are you working with local contractors/supporting local industry?
We have partnered with globally renowned casino resort architects, as well as Australian/Queensland designers and architects, to help bring our plans to life and ensure the Gold Coast spirit shines through.

What has been completed to date?
Our four Executive Floors including a world-class Penthouse, lavish Suites and Executive Deluxe Rooms were completed prior to Christmas 2015, while the remaining refurbished Superior Deluxe Rooms are underway and expected to be finalised by the end of 2016.
