Brisbane landmarks on new Monopoly board

The new Brisbane edition of Monopoly will feature some familiar local landmarks, but others haven't even been given the chance to pass "GO."

The board includes 22 local landmarks to replace the traditional London streets which make up the iconic version of the popular game.

South Bank and the Story Bridge have been slotted into the most expensive dark blue squares, while Mt Coot-Tha Lookout and Fortitude Valley have the dubious honour of being allocated the two cheapest squares.

But some major landmarks have missed out entirely, with locales such as Customs House and the Botanic Gardens not making the cut.

Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said the board reflects a snapshot of what Brisbane has to offer.

"Certainly all the great aspects of Brisbane have been reflected, and that's been the great thing about this Monopoly board game," Cr Quirk said.

In particular, Brisbane's City Hall didn't technically make the cut, although Cr Quirk said it was represented on the board by the Shingle Inn.

"Of course (Shingle Inn is) one of Brisbane's great landmarks, it has so much history, and that's why we brought it into City Hall when we did the renovation," he said.

Some of the other squares on the new board include The Gabba and Suncorp Stadium, standing in for the orange Marlborough and Vine Streets on the classic board, along with the Queen Street Mall standing in for the pink square Whitehall.

The layout of the board was partially decided by a public vote earlier this year.
