South Bank is Brisbane's Monopoly Mayfair

Brisbane has it's own version of Monopoly, with South Bank slotting into the enviable Mayfair square, but no one will go straight to Boggo Road Gaol.

The popular cultural and lifestyle precinct on the banks of the Brisbane River is just one of the city's 22 local landmarks to replace the traditional London streets in the local version of the iconic game.

The Story Bridge has been allocated the other expensive dark blue square, Park Lane, while Mt Coot-Tha Lookout and Fortitude Valley have the dubious honour of being allocated the two cheapest squares.

The Gabba, Suncorp Stadium and Queen Street Mall are also on the board.

But some major landmarks have missed out entirely, including Customs House and the Botanic Gardens.

The board's layout has sparked debate on social media, with some questioning the allocation of the squares.

"Really, #BrisbaneMonopoly? Southbank is our Mayfair equivalent?!! I'll just keep to my red properties (#qpac #qldmuseum #qagoma) TY v much!," one woman tweeted.

There were also questions about the non-inclusion of the notorious Boggo Road Gaol and why the University of Queensland was the only tertiary institution to make the cut.

The RACQ also said there was an obvious chance card which should have been featured.

"There's a test match on at the Gabba and it's causing traffic delays.Wait three turns to roll," the peak motoring body tweeted.

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