Fodor's Review

Encompassing a whole city block, the bold, abstract-style landmark was designed to be Melbourne's official meeting place, with a variety 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; the Koorie Heritage Trust, which runs exhibitions, programs, and tours relating to Aboriginal Melbourne; and the Melbourne Visitor Centre. Regular events are held in the square and along the path beside the Yarra River. Crowds often gather to watch events on the giant "Fed TV" in the center of the square.
