Sydney Harbour top property in Australian "Monopoly"

Sydney Harbour top property in Australian "Monopoly" - Sydney - Australia

SYDNEY, Oct 30 (Reuters - Sydney's Opera House and Bondi Beach are amongst some of the iconic landmarks featuring in Australia's first official Sydney Monopoly board game, but Sydney Harbour scooped the title of most exclusive property.

"It has taken a while, we apologize for that, but as soon as the opportunity came up, we grabbed it with both hands and we wanted to get Sydney to the Monopoly market as soon as possible," said Reid Herbert from the games manufacturer Winning Moves on Tuesday, the day the board game was officially launched.

Sydney Harbour now takes its place among other plum properties, the equivalent of Boardwalk in the U.S. version and Mayfair in the London edition.

"Sydney Harbour is highly regarded as one of the world's finest harbours for its beauty ... which is also integral to the Sydney Monopoly board," Herbert said in an earlier statement.

After deciding to make the game, the company in early 2012 called for public nominations for landmarks via Facebook. From a flood of nominations 22 places from Sydney and the greater Sydney area were selected.
