Federation Square

Federation Square Review

Encompassing a whole city block, the bold, abstract-style landmark was designed to be Melbourne's official meeting place, with a variery of attractions and restaurants within it. The square incorporates the second branch of the National Gallery of Victoria (Ian Potter Centre), which exhibits only Australian art, as well as the Australian Centre for the Moving Image; the Deakin Edge amphitheater, a contemporary music and theater performance venue; and the Melbourne Visitor Centre.
