Wrest Point Tasmania is a venue of great historical significance in Tasmania. It is a Hobart casino that was born in those days when the Australian hotel industry was in its infancy. Owing to this, the company behind Wrest Point is one of the oldest and long-standing in Australia.

In the early nineteenth century, a few entrepreneurs created the Federal Coffee Palace Company. The structure, which was the tallest in Melbourne in those days, became Hotel Federal in the year 1924. Over the next fifty years, the parent company of Hotel Federal got busy developing and operating some of the best hotels across Australia, including The Windsor and Savoy Plaza. They then purchased the Wrest Point Riviera Hotel in Tasmania, which developed into the Wrest Point of today.
