It's a key time for the gaming industry in Australia
with all the regulation elements, responsible gambling

friends at Human Statue Bodyart were back again and
they had a couple of body models made up in bodypaint
(Anastasia as a butterfly and Victoria as a panda)
- complete with wings and sparkles, for leading gaming
brand Paltronics and its latest game 'Jungle Madness'.
expo centre itself is huge - 15,000 square metres
(about the size of an Aussie Rules football oval)
and this provided more than ample opportunity for
over 750 slot games on display.
Australasian Gaming Expo is by far the largest event
of its type in Australia and one of the worlds
learned through the grapevine that a trip for 2 to
Las Vegas will be won by a lucky visitor on each of
the 3 days of the Expo, and this is compliments of
the Gaming Technologies Association which owns the
event. It's understood the winner of the trip will
be named later this afternoon.
tipped over 20,000 people have walked through the
games expo thus far, with those in the business being
the majority, and no doubt a few punters, checked
through the gates (but note that the games on display
do not accept coins or notes).
done to everyone associated with the success of the
expo and we'll see you there again next year.

Harbour is a locality of Sydney,
New South Wales, Australia
with a large recreational, pedestrian precinct. It
is situated at Sydney central business district. The
locality extends northwards from Chinatown, along
both sides of Cockle Bay to King Street Wharf on the
east, and to the suburb of Pyrmont on the west. Cockle
Bay is just one of the waterways that makes up Darling
Harbour, which opens north into the much larger Port
precinct and its immediate surroundings are administered
independently of the local government area of the
City of Sydney, by a New South Wales state government
statutory authority, the Sydney Harbour Foreshore
Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre at Darling
Harbour was a key meeting venue of APEC Australia
Harbour is named after Lieutenant-General Ralph Darling,
who was Governor of New South Wales from 1825 to 1831.
It was originally part of the commercial port of Sydney,
including the Darling Harbour Railway Goods Yard.
During the Great Depression, the eastern part of Darling
Harbour became known as The Hungry Mile, a reference
to the waterside workers searching for jobs along
the wharves. By the mid-to-late 1980s it had become
largely derelict and was redeveloped as a pedestrian
and tourist precinct as an initiative of then New
South Wales Minister for Public Works, Laurie Brereton.
Darling Harbour is now part of a massive urban renewal
development, adding more high rises and public space
to the Sydney CBD. The state government of New South
Wales, have announced plans for the 18-hectare site
to be 50% business and residential development, while
the other half be open public space. The government
declared plans to include "Globe St" in
the renewal project. "Globe St" is a street
designed to become Australia's and Asia
Pacific's new "Wall
St," succeeding Martin Place (also in the
Sydney CBD). It will be the centre for corporate trade.
The urban renewal development is not expected to be
completed until 2020. East Darling Harbour will have
the same postcode as Sydney, 2000, and the area is
now called "Barangaroo." The name "Barangaroo"
was chosen from a state competition to name the site.It
also has an Overseas Passenger Terminal (Wharf 8)
which is mainly used by Pacific Dawn (ship) which
is the P&O Australia fleet which was previsouly
served by Pacific Sun (ship) which is now based in
Brisbane. MS Sun Princess which is operaterd by Princess
Cruises also uses this as a home port.
Darling Harbour precinct is home to a number of major
public facilities and attractions, including:
* Harbourside Shopping Centre which includes Kingpin
Bowling Alley, M9 Laser wars as well as Australia's
first retail jet-Flight simulator.
* Sydney Entertainment Centre
* Paddy's Market
* Sydney's Chinese Gardens
* Tumbalong Park
* Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre
* Australian National Maritime Museum (featuring museum
ships including HMAS Vampire)
* Powerhouse Museum
* Sydney Aquarium
* the IMAX theatre - the largest in the world
* Sydney Wildlife World
* Aboriginal Centre
* Sega World Sydney (closed in 2000)

Harbour is the location of the castmates house on
MTV's reality TV show, The Real World: Sydney, which
aired in late 2007. The house has a large "Darling
Harbour" sign along its edge, and the World Tower
high rise building can be seen behind it. The Seven
Network's Sydney production studios are where interior
shots for Home and Away are filmed, as well as other
shows such as Larry Emdur & Laura Csortan's Wheel
Of Fortune (Late 2005-2006). The Mighty Morphin'
