Federation Square


Federation Square or, as it is called by locals, Fed Square is a very popular and dynamic cultural hub

in Melbourne. It is the cityís focal point for creative and cultural activities. Fed Square is almost always abuzz with cultural festivals, event launches, book clubs, exhibitions, fashion festivals, wine showcases, Guinness Book record attempts, concerts, films and so much more.

The square is made up of two major public spaces surrounded by several buildings which house art galleries, a public broadcaster, cinemas, a museum, art galleries, auditoria, exhibition spaces, bars, restaurants and shops. One of the public spaces is the covered Atrium. The other is comprised by two linked spaces: St. Paulís Court and The Square.

In 2006, a major addition was made to Fed Square in the form of the Federation Wharf.

The wharf extended the square to the Yarra River through the redevelopment of the vaults

beneath Prince Bridge into ferry terminals and cafes equipped with elevator access to the square.

Fed Square features unique museums and galleries that are rich with Australianís cultural and artistic heritage. They include National Gallery of Victoria, the Australian Center for the Moving Image, the ACGA Gallery, and the Champions Australian Racing Museum and Hall of Fame.
