Great Ocean Road makes Australian Monopoly board

THE Great Ocean Road has been voted into the latest Aussie version of the board game Monopoly.

The game, which is due out on June 15, sees Victorian locales taking up the orange spaces, with Melbourne and Phillip Island also on the board.

The most expensive spaces in the game (Mayfair and Park Lane in the UK version) went to NSW’s Sydney Harbour and Orange.

The second-most prized positions belong to Queensland (Whitsundays, Gold Coast, Tropical North Qld), followed by South Australia (Barossa Valley, Kangaroo Island, Port Lincoln), and the ACT (Questacon, Australian War Memorial, Canberra).

Rounding out the board were WA (Esperance, Broome, Margaret River), Tasmania (Hobart, Freycinet National Park, Stanley), and the Northern Territory (Alice Springs, Darwin).

Voting for the Aussie Monopoly took place in November last year, with over 35,000 people voting.

The tokens for the game will be a barbeque, a kangaroo, a kookaburra, a cricket bat, a meat pie and a surfer.

There is also an Aussie twist on the community chest and chance cards, which feature references to the NRL State Of Origin, lamingtons, and the Melbourne Cup.
