There are plans in place to construct a new casino close to Sydney’s famous harbour.

Sydney could soon be boasting a new attraction on the banks of its famous harbour as plans are in place for a casino to be constructed.

The new casino would be built at Barangaroo by James Packer and comes as part of his plans to make the city a more attractive place for affluent Asian travellers.

It is believed the project will come as part of an AU$1 billion (£679 million) scheme to construct a hotel on the site, which will be under the control of Mr Packer’s Crown group.

The casino is expected to house mainly gaming tables, as the company which is behind the plans does not have a licence to install fruit machines at the location.

Flights to Sydney are increasingly in demand for travellers from around the world, something which has recently prompted chief executive of Sydney Airport Kerrie Mather to state the terminal has the capacity to meet demand until 2050.
