"Federation Square" Federation Square Tip by allikat
Federation Square, Melbourne: 49 reviews and 94 photos
Federation Square is a huge modern area with a whole lot of things going on - the day I wandered through half of Melbourne seemed to be there as well watching a soccer match on the huge open-air TV screen. There are cafes, bars, a funky glass visitor information centre, a function centre, a major art gallery, the Australian Racing Museum and more. Right in the heart of Melbourne Federation Square is billed as a 'unique cultural precinct'. It is certainly different - I guess that being a lover of more traditional architecture I wasn't as taken with the modern geometric designs of the area as many people undoubtedly would be, but at the same time I was really impressed that the city had gone to such lengths to create a great public area. I would love to be here with the Aussies playing the All Blacks up on that big screen!
Unfortunately, few of my photos of the Square turned out well. So I will have to come back!
