    Attractions and bars

    Lots of good bars and attractions like ACMI and the Ian Potter Gallery. Not great for accessibility with the uneven stone.

Additional Information


Federation Square is known as one of Melbourne's landmarks. The architect transformed static concept graphics into dynamic real world geometry. After the sun passes, after a shower or when night falls, its atmosphere, colors, texture and grain undergo amazing changes that have shocked those in the construction industry. Federation Square is located in the heart of Melbourne. Its main structure consists of 11 buildings and some open areas. Most of the Square's functions are designed to meet the cultural and leisure needs of the people. It is an ideal place to connect with the community, share culture and expressive features, and showcase Melbourne and Victoria lifestyles.
