Melbourne edition of Monopoly drops streets, picks special places instead

A takeaway coffee cup, a football, Phar Lap, a spray paint can, tram and a book - according to Monopoly, those are the items that symbolise Melbourne.

They were revealed as the player tokens for the Melbourne edition of the world's most popular board game, which was launched on Tuesday in soggy weather - according to some, another typical Melbourne symbol.

While the original edition featured the streets of Atlantic CIty and the version most Australians know and love takes you on a tour of London from the Old Kent Road to Mayfair, Melbourne Monopoly is made up of tourist destinations.

These include the Queen Victoria Market, Shrine of Remembrance, Etihad Stadium, St Kilda beach and the Arts Centre plus a few non-metropolitan destinations including the Great Ocean Road.


The MCG has been given the coveted Mayfair position, which seems a safe choice.

In my opinion, it should have been just central Melbourne and not include Great Ocean Road and Bells Beach.

Mayfair and Park Lane should have been replaced with Collins Street and Bourke Street!

I won't be buying this version of


I collect, therefore I am.

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture. Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”. Perhaps the most striking example of this juxtaposition between old and new is the Coops Shot...
