How to get there: Situated on the Marina in Hobart.  Everything in Hobart is within walking distance in this small city.

General Conditions: Opening in 1973, Wrest Point is the oldest casino in Australia.  The complex also includes two hotels (one 5 star and one 3 star), a conference centre and five restaurants.  Table numbers are as follows:

$5-$500: 3
$10-$1000: 3
$25 - $1000: 1

The $10 -$1000 tables are unique (maximum bet usually $500) and quite alluring for card counters.  However, a rule can be enforced restricting your bet to no more than 3 times your previous bet.  Being such a small casino you may only last a few hours here before being barred.  Currently cutting 2 decks or less from 8 decks, depending on the dealer.
