Federation Square is a cultural highlight for many of the locals and visitors of Melbourne City. The expansive city block sized public space has been beautifully designed to conjure images of Australia's sunburned outback, and was paved with ochre colored tiles imported from Western Australia for the construction.
There are a number of attractions at Federation square, where the modern architecture contrasts well with St. Paul's Cathedral and Flinders Station just across the road. The Australian Centre for the Moving Image is a monument to the lasting and current impact of visual arts on Australia and the world and regularly features events that will capture the imagination and the eye.
Street performers and buskers regularly entertain visitors to the square, and prime sporting events are displayed on a large screen. There are dining options and the chance to have a quiet drink.
