Wollongong is about to be immortalised just like Sydney, Dubai, Auckland and Brooklyn have been before them and anyone can own a piece of the excitement.
Landmarks and streets around The Gong will feature in a new version of Monopoly, the world's favourite real estate board game.
The new edition will be launched on Wednesday at Wollongong Central though the highest and lowest squares have already been revealed to the Illawarra Mercury.
Nan Tien Temple in Berkeley - the nation's biggest Buddhist Temple - will replace Old Kent Road on brown, while Symbio Wildlife Park will take the much coveted dark blue tile traditionally filled by Park Lane.
Winning Moves Australia, makers of custom Monopoly boards licensed from Hasbro, created the new board with natural and cultural attractions, as well as landmarks known for sport and education.
"We try and speak to as many businesses as possible, we also get a lot of suggestions from the general public ... plus also discussions with the tourism board and council, to make sure we are getting every aspect of Wollongong which makes Wollongong what it is," said Dale Hackett from Winning Moves.
"We look at different sectors around the community whether they're natural attractions, cultural attractions, your sport, your education."

In March 2021, the Mercury called on readers for suggestions on what should replace Mayfair and Park Lane.
It caused a flurry across social media with hundreds of recommendations like the Piccadilly Centre, Cliff Road, Jamberoo Action Park and the Towradgi hump.
Wollongong is the ninth city in Australia to have a special local edition, and will retail for around $50.
It comes as the end of 2020 saw a new Australian version of Monopoly released with timely reminders of that year gone by.
A chest card could issue you a fine of $50 for hoarding 240 toilet rolls, while Batemans Bay, Mount Gambier and The Three Sisters in Katoomba were featured landmarks.
The Monopoly board game first hit shelves in 1935 and has since then been played by more than one billion people, according to Winning Moves.
Today, the game is played in 114 countries and enjoyed in over 47 different languages.
