Note: until September 2015, The Ville was trading as Jupiters Townsville.

DEVELOPMENTS With a $40 million redevelopment and new name to set the scene for a new identity and total venue transformation, Jupiters Townsville has made the switch to its new name – The Ville.

This means that the preparations are now underway for the reinvention of Townsville’s iconic hotel and casino.

As Colonial Leisure Group (CLG) Executive Chairman Chris Morris explains, ‘The Ville’ was strategically selected because it is a name locals can identify with, a name travellers can connect to the city and it fits with the relaxed and cool resort-style vision.

CLG’s vision for The Ville is not only to continue to provide high-quality entertainment, but also to rejuvenate the property, turning it into a leading regional resort and total entertainment precinct that promotes the best of Townsville, and is something North Queensland can be proud of.

CLG is a premium operator in the hospitality industry with 18 venues across three states in Australia, from pubs and restaurants to hotels and resorts, including the Northern Escapes group of businesses – Orpheus Island Resort, Mount Mulligan StationDaintree Eco Lodge,Nautilus Aviation and the Flying Fish.
