Interesting architecture, open spaces, galleries, shops, dining options and tourism activities make Melbourne's "Fed Square" a hub for locals and visitors.

The space also boasts a busy events programme that encompasses festivals, performances, installations and exhibitions.

Summer is particularly busy, with live music every second Thursday until April 21, covering a wide variety of musical genres. Australia Day is celebrated on January 26, and various ethnic groups hold multicultural festivals on their National Days.

Regular events include classical concerts, monthly wine tastings, a weekly Saturday morning book market, a car showcase, and performance poetry.

One-hour guided tours of the square run Monday-Saturday at 2pm.
