It was in that the town was officially gazetted. By a private school had been opened it catered for 15 students on the bank of the Richmond River near where the Irving Bridge stands.
A doctor arrived two years later and in the same year a second hotel, Tattersalls, was opened. In the town saw the opening of the first Public School and the population had grown to a point where there was a mail delivery once a week.
Still this was hardly a thriving country town. Robert Dawson, who arrived in the area in , described it as 'a drab little village though there were some buildings of fair pretensions' and observed that 'roads were almost non-existent, only rough bush tracks being available' and that 'nowhere on the Richmond were there any banks, churches, newspapers or telegraph lines'.
The next few years were to see this rather sad village turned into a town. In , after years of construction, a bridge across the Richmond River was completed.
Between the s and the s the town competed for importance with Lismore and by the s Lismore was clearly the more important of the town centres.
By the railway had arrived but the town had already positioned itself as a service centre for the surrounding rich agricultural lands.
Today Casino calls itself 'The Beef Capital'. It has an official Beef Week which is held each May - the 'week' actually lasts for 12 days.
With a population of around 12, it is a thriving rural centre which relies heavily on the region's cattle industry combined with the importance of the local timber industry.
To appreciate the scale of the local cattle industry it is worth noting that over , head of cattle are sold at the Casino Livestock Selling Centre each year.
A Heritage Walk If you start at the Casino Museum in Walker Street the following route will take you past most of the important buildings in the town.
It is a walk which can be achieved in 40 minutes or, if you care to walk slower, you could easily spend a couple of hours.
Casino Museum The Casino Museum has an interesting collection of local memorabilia. Of particular interest are the old gazogenes or syphons for making flavoured soda water.
It has a substantial collection of antiques, photographs of early Casino, Aboriginal artefacts, household items from colonial times and farming equipment..
It is open from 2. It can be opened by appointment. Contact 02 The official register records this attractive brick building, which is hidden behind some mature and graceful camphor laurel trees, as being constructed in but Maurice Ryan's book 'Casino: From Crossing Place to Municipality' claims that while the town did have a court house in the early s that the present building was completed in and replaced an old timber building which had outlived its usefulness.
Certainly the current building is an important part of the town's landscape. Parks Head down to the River.
One of Casino's great attractions are the parks which line the Richmond River. There is the Memorial park with its cairn just upstream from the Irving Bridge - the main bridge across the river commemorating the crossing of the Richmond River by Europeans in It outlines a pleasant 3 km walk along the banks of the Richmond River which is designed to last about 1 hour.
Platypus Pool It is always worth mentioning that I once had an editor who told me that if I could find a place where the platypus could be seen in the wild by every visitor he was happy to run it as a front page story.
The animal is notoriously shy and the best that can be hoped for is that with patience and a little luck the visitor may get to see these strange creatures.
St Marks Church of England Built in and completed in July, this church replaced the original Church of England, a timber building which was built in It is a significant local hotel dating from when it was moved to its present site from its original position in Walker Street.
It was cut into sections and hauled by bullock teams. Historically it has a reputation as the town's 'cattleman's pub'. St Marys was completed in and opened in by the Bishop of Lismore.
Post Office Return to Barker Street and head east. Located in Barker Street this two-storey brick building, with some fine Classical detailing, was completed in although there has been a history of major alterations.
The original building provided an office, four rooms, a kitchen and a stable. There was no fence and no bathroom.
It has been altered and extended in and It is still an impressive country post office.
