The Australian Leagues Club is one of the most bizzare places I’ve ever been to. Bizzare and wonderful.
A Leagues club is an exclusive, membership-based wonderland of casinos, buffets, gymnasiums, horse race betting booths, pubs, spas, and hotel rooms. They seeed to have originated as an entertainment venue for cricket and rugby teams and their famiilies. They are now open to the general public, although you can’t visit as a guest if you live in a certain proximity of the club, you have to join as a member (weird, right?)
The strangest thing about Leagues Clubs is that it’s just a big building with all these seemingly random elements mashed together. Still I’m glad I got to see one.
