Melbourne ATTRACTIONS See all

Federation Square

Federation Square is Melbourne's focal point and favorite meeting place. Outdoor cafes surround the square, which is dominated by a huge outdoor screen. People flock here to people-watch or catch don't-miss sport or activities on the screen, and it’s the location for Melbourne's most important public events and ceremonies.

Back from the cafes you'll find the Australian art section of the National Gallery of Victoria, known as the Ian Potter Centre – the perfect place to get a sense of Australia’s art history from colonial days to the present day. Other cultural icons at Federation Square include cinema history at ACMI, art galleries and creative outdoor play spaces for kids.

Practical Info

Federation Square takes up one of Melbourne's most central and prominent city blocks, opposite Flinders Street Station by the Yarra River. You can get here easily by train or tram, or on foot while shopping in the city.
