The Crown Casino.


Crown Melbourne (also referred to as Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex) is a casino and resort located on the south bank of the Yarra River, in Melbourne, Australia. Crown Casino is a unit of Crown Limited, and the first casino of the now-international Crown brand.  Initially having opened in 1994 on the north bank of the Yarra, Crown Melbourne relocated and re–opened on the south bank of the Yarra, in 1997. It remains one of the central features of the Southbank precinct of the Melbourne central business district. The entire complex has a space of 510,000 m²—the equivalent to two city blocks—making it the largest casino complex in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the largest in the world. The complex also hosts four hotels, Crown Towers, Crown Promenade, and Crown Metropol, with a fourth hotel approved for construction which is expected to commence in 2018.  See you soon.

Durin the Fair Dinkum tour, I had the extreme pleasure of working with many different press outlets, but the most fun by far was the ‘Get Cereal’ morning show on Syn 90.7 in Melbourne.  From the producer, to all the morning show hosts, I had a blast.  Got to shout out some friends, some venues, and I just wanted to throw up the interview to say thank you to the station for showing me a good time, and letting me take over later on that night by co-hosting 3 Hip Hop shows.  Check the method.

If this is what I can look forward to for my tour here in Australia then I am all in (And yes, I just touched down safely in Sydney today). Ruby Rose is the hottest new cast-member of the show ‘Orange is the new Black” and she is, you guessed it, from Australia.

Ruby Rose Langenheim, better known as Ruby Rose, is an Australian model, DJ, actress, television presenter, MTV VJ and recording artist. She is the face of Maybelline New York in Australia.

The beautiful gender-bending actress reportedly came out as lesbian when she was 12 but has recently gone viral due to her stunning looks on ‘Orange Is The New Black’ so fellas don’t leave your lady round her!

“Woke up trending on Twitter and I haven’t seen the show yet got me feeling realllllll vulnerable right now!” she tweeted. “Hope you’re all loving the show.”

Take a look at renewed Prahan Hotel in Melbourne, Australia. Techné Architects made a design by adding an extension that uses oversized concrete pipes. The Prahan Hotel is set to commence on the second stage of its transformation. Succeeding the recent interior refurbishment, the planned new works include an extension to the rear of the venue. Featuring a facade constructed out of concrete culverts, linked together in a way that enables the patrons to sit within them to view and interact with the venue and its fellow patrons. A fully glazed courtyard cuts through the interior, connecting all levels and allowing natural light in. The design intends to add another unique and captivating venue to the ever evolving Melbourne pub scene.
