Get excited Monopoly fans – Australia’s first real-life Macca’s Monopoly Hotel has come to Australia!
The petite-sized hotel from one of our favourite childhood games came to life in Federation Square, Melbourne overnight, making the dreams of two Macca’s fans come true.
Adorned with its game-board themed interior, the hotel, which measures just 2.4m x 3m, was built to celebrate the return of the Monopoly Game at Macca’s and to launch the new interactive game app.

Laura Paton and Emma Kendrick were lucky enough to win a night’s stay to mark the occasion, and were the first people in the country to wake up and win instantly!
“We’ve often joked about moving into a Macca’s every year the Monopoly Game returns to try and win as many times as possible, but this is even better. It’s not often you get to say that you woke up in a giant game piece!” Laura said.
Jenni Dill, Chief Marketing Officer at McDonald’s Australia said whilst the hotel may be one of the smallest in the world, it is definitely one of the most unique.
“Monopoly is one of those quintessential family board games, we’ve all got fond memories of playing it so we wanted to bring it to life in a unique way to launch this year’s Monopoly Game at Macca’s. It may be one of the tiniest hotels in the world but hopefully one of the most memorable for Laura and Emma.”
This year, Monopoly players will have a one in five chance of winning instantly from a pool of more than 30 million prizes up for grabs, including cars, holidays, cash and McDonald’s food prizes.
“The majority of us are smart phone users so we wanted to create an enhanced game experience – we’re really excited with how the app takes the game to another level by allowing customers to win more prizes, even when they’re not in a restaurant,” adds Jenni.
Monopoly at Macca’s is available to play now at all McDonald’s restaurants around the country.
