Federation Square Review

Federation Square is one of Melbourne's most iconic landmarks. It welcomes approximately 10 million visitors who flock there every year and is a stone's throw away from Flinders Street Station, the Melbourne Arts Precincts and Melbourne's sporting hub. It's a place where people can meet, gather and experience some of Victoria's best civic and cultural activities.

However, it is also going through a period of change with key infrastructure projects underway in the precinct and surrounding areas such as the construction of the Metro Tunnel, the redevelopment of the Australian Centre for the Moving Image and the ongoing transformation of the Melbourne Arts Precinct.

The Victorian Government’s detailed review of Federation Square will ensure important Federation Square continues to grow as an innovative and exciting place for the community.

Following the release of the Public Consultation report, the Victorian Government is reviewing the recommendations of the Federation Square Review.

The Review team would like to thank the community and stakeholders for their interest, ideas and support for the Review – your insights and contributions have been invaluable in developing recommendations for the future of Federation Square.
