On 25 June 1847, Melbourne was declared a city by letters patent of Queen Victoria.
By 1865, Melbourne had become Australia's most populous city, at a time when consumer confidence was high, credit was easy to access and steep increases were seen in the price of land.
Today, Melbourne is one of the most vibrant and liveable cities in the world and this edition of MONOPOLY captures the magic of this unique city.
