Great place to meet friends in the city. Very much a landmark of Melbourne. Right across the road from the main station of Flinders Street Station and is culturally important as well. Lots of events are run all year round here at Federation Square. The Yarra River is also a stone throw away. For any tourists, this is a must visit all year round. Or just sit by the steps and relax and enjoy the Melbourne city skyline all around you in 360 degree view.
