Monopoly welcomes Wollongong on board

Christmas gifts are now sorted in the NSW Illawarra with the release of the official Wollongong Monopoly board game.

Residents and tourists can travel the board and visit Wollongong landmarks like Mount Keira lookout, the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre or Crown Street while playing the Gong’s official Monopoly board game.

“Wollongong is really on the map now thanks to this classic board game,” Wollongong City Council General Manager (Acting), Kerry Hunt said.

“Forget Pall Mall, the Electricity Company or The Strand, with this game you’ve the chance to land on the Sea Cliff Bridge, Corrimal Beach or Wollongong Tourist Parks.

“Whether you’re a hoarder of hotels on Dark Blue properties or a collector of train stations, there’s something exciting about seeing the places we all know and love here in Wollongong decorate the board.

“I would suggest there will be quite a few Christmas stockings filled with the Wollongong Monopoly board games these holidays. My advice to those getting ready to play is to have a serious discussion about what house game rules are allowed, choose your game snacks wisely, and invite your friends and family to compete for board game glory.”

Winning Moves (the makers of licensed Monopoly editions), spoke to local residents and businesses to select the themes and iconic Wollongong locations for the board game.

The new MONOPOLY: Wollongong Edition is available now from leading toy retailers across the region.
