When Melburnians want to take a break from complaining about the weather, they start whinging about Melbourne's 'Meeting Place', Federation Square. Love it or hate it, there's always something happening - farmers' markets, free films on the big screen, art and craft displays, wine and food exhibitions, and live music.
If you're a visitor to the fine city of Melbourne then heading to Fed Square is always a good starting point. Apart from all the free events regularly held in the square, it's also within walking distance to Birrarung Marr, the Royal Botanic Gardens, the NGV (Australia and International), ACMI, the Forum and Flinders Street Station (possibly the most Instagrammed train station in Australia).
