A very special Australian Community Relief Edition of the popular board game Monopoly has just been released. The edition highlights regional towns with an outstanding sense of community spirit. It's no surprise that two of the three Tasmanian properties on the board are in the electorate of Braddon, and I think the ratio is about right. The city of Devonport is on the board at 300 bucks—significantly undervalued! For the astute player: buy now, buy early, because, once the new federally funded waterfront precinct is complete, your investment's going to skyrocket. At $320, the picturesque harbourside village of Strahan is also on the board. For your investment, you are located on the edge of the west coast wilderness area, where you can cruise the Gordon River, ride the wilderness railway and feast on Tasmania's best produce. I encourage everyone to buy the game this year, with $5 from every sale donated kindly to the Red Cross.

But, if board games aren't your thing, why not book a holiday to visit the north-west, the west coast or King island in the great state of Tasmania? The region is back and open for business, and we're rolling out the welcome mat. Who knows? It might be your only overseas trip this year. You couldn't find a better place to spend your summer holidays. We look forward to seeing you once again in the great state of Tasmania.
