More than a popular meeting spot in Melbourne, Federation Square serves as an entertainment destination in the heart of the city. Encompassing a city block, this plaza contains bars, restaurants, cafes, art galleries, and plenty of shops. You can rent a bike here and ride around the city, or depart on a boat cruise from the nearby dock. Check out The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, holder of the world's biggest collection of Australian art. Of architectural note are the scalene-triangle sandstone building facades and ochre-colored sandstone blocks in the main square's paving. See Federation Square and all Melbourne has to offer by arranging your trip with our Melbourne trip maker website.

  • Melbourne Writers Festival at Deakin Edge. Wonderful to hear Tracy Chevalier and Hannah Kent discuss their work. The only faults were that the wooden seats were very hard, and although the glass permits wonderful views, it also makes this venue very hot. I wouldn't want to be present at a function during summer
  • Federation Square is an interesting site. It had people divided over its design from the very beginning... which is funny when you remember that the Sydney Opera House had the same problems 😉 This is a good outdoor meeting area, as it's located right next to Flinders Street Station, and has a number of activities and facilities located right next door. I like meeting up with people here, and I like the unique design of the buildings (based on mathematical principles or so I was told). Love this city!
