About Federation Square

Federation Square also called Fed Square is Melbourne's civic centre. It was opened on the 26 October 2002 with further expansion in 2006 with Federation Wharf which connected the square and the Yarra River.

Federation Square View photoOccupying a whole city block, the square is surrounded by Melbourne icons. The Yarra River forms one border with streets forming the remainder, including Flinders Street and St Kilda Road. From Federation Square you can see and have easy access to Flinders Station, St Pauls Cathedral, The National Gallery of Australia building, and the inner city suburb of Southbank. There are a number of access routes to Federation Wharf where there are a number of cafes and a walk on the banks of the Yarra River.

Fed Square is famous for its artistic and geometrically shaped buildings. They are designed with glass and sandstone tiles over metal frames. Three shards border the square. Two have a metallic surface while the third has a glass surface. The ground is paved with sandstone tiles from Western Australia.

Federation Square houses the likes of the Melbourne Visitor Centre, National Gallery of Victoria, SBS Television and Radio Headquarters, and many other prominent tenants.
