Monopoly Australia gives Australia’s best-loved board game a fresh twist with the nation’s favourite destinations up for grabs.

The Community Chest and Chance Cards have been customised, offering players the chance to sell their State-of-Origin tickets or sell their lamingtons at the school fete.

There is an Australian flavour to the player tokens, which include a meat pie, a barbecue, a cricket bat, a kookaburra and a kangaroo.

The train stations featured on the original board game have been replaced by the airports of Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne.
