Skycity Darwin in Northern Territory has been open at the same site since 1983, undergoing several name changes along the way. When the Skycity Entertainment Group took over the former MGM Grand Darwin in 2004, the shift was another in a long string for the gambling property which began life as the Mindil Beach Casino.
Skycity is located just three kilometres from the Darwin city centre. Skycity is both a casino and hotel property, a medium-sized gambling operation that is, as of this writing, the largest in Skycity’s casino operations. The next biggest property owned by the group is the Skycity Hamilton in New Zealand, which is about 25 per cent smaller than the Darwin property in terms of the number of table games, pokies, and other gambling options available.
