Fed Square is Anything But Square!
Told you we had something special brewing. Over the past 18 years Fed Square has become a globally iconic destination and Melbourne’s gathering place. Plenty has changed in that time, but not our logo… until now. We’ve listened to our community about how they feel about Fed Square, how they use the space, and what they want to see in the future, to create our Anything But Square philosophy. Our new brand is more than just a new visual identity, it is our promise to deliver a kaleidoscope of experiences that inspire, engage and celebrate our community and to redefine what it means to be a world-class civic and cultural precinct. Best of all, we are bringing our Anything But Square philosophy to life in so many ways already – from our exciting new shaded areas to relax in the Square, our jam-packed summer event calendar, to newly launched podcast episodes and documentaries diving into the architecture and heritage of Fed Square. So whether you pop along to Fed Square in person or join us online at the Virtual Square, we hope you’ll enjoy this Anything But Square adventure.

Anything But Square Podcast Series
Did you know Melbourne was deliberately designed without a public square, so as to prevent the spirit of democracy from arising? Or have you ever wondered why the Square is designed in such an irregular shape and fashion with heavy influence from geometry? A place like Fed Square doesn’t spring up overnight – and it certainly doesn’t come to be where it is today without a swag of fascinating tales in tow. Check out our triple-bill podcast episodes below to celebrate our new brand and learn all about the hidden secrets and ingenuity of Fed Square’s history, direct from many of the significant people who were involved in its founding. Fed Square is Anything But Square!

Mini Documentaries
A place like Fed Square doesn’t spring up overnight – and it certainly doesn’t come to be where it is today without a swag of fascinating tales in tow. As part of our new look we decided to delve into the past and create some incredible short-form docos on the history and background of Fed Square. You’ll uncover the giant maze that hides beneath the Square, appreciate the engineering marvels and architectural significance that makes us one of the youngest heritage listed sites in the world and you’ll discover our heritage and unusual history that makes our precinct anything but square! These mini-docs shine a light on some of our favourite stories of Fed Square – check them out below! Fed Square is Anything But Square!

Fed Oasis
Slip, slop, slap – it’s time to kick back at Fed Oasis Comfy seating and shaded areas? Tick. Order food from our cafes and restaurants, and have it delivered to you in the square? Tick. Live music on the stage, classic films, giveaways, daily meditation experiences and more? Tick, tick, and tick. You spoke; we listened: Fed Oasis is bringing comfy seating, shady umbrellas and plenty of (recycled, environmentally-friendly) astroturf to save the kiddies’ knees – somewhere soft to sit and soak up the surroundings has always been our most-requested addition, and with Fed Oasis it’s finally here. And if that throat is a little thirsty once you’re seated comfortably, just whip out the phone and order food and drink from one of the many brilliants bars, cafes and restaurants around you – and the goods will be delivered to you right there in the square! Talk about gold-class (gold grass?) luxury – and combined with our sport, Friday fed-itation with Laughscape and movie schedule, there’s no better place to be for fun in the sun or a balmy evening out. Who’s delivering grub? Mama’s Canteen Transport  Chocolate Buddha Timeout Cafe Service of alcohol is not permitted in the square. Service Times: 12pm – 2pm and 6pm – 8.30pm daily.

Sun’s out, fun’s out! If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy the long weekend, we’ve got a schedule of goodies lined up to keep the family entertained. There’s nothing quite like live music – and from the jazzy Jack Earle Big Band, Mighty Duke & The Lords and Fed Live finalists Taylah Caroll and Franke James, there’s something for everyone live and free on the main stage all weekend long. Bringing the kiddies along too? You’re in luck – family-friendly clowning entertainers Don’t Mess With The Dummies are putting on a free, live show – with free smoothies for the crowd, too!

You’re cordially invited to run amok through it and cool down – as the great Sebantian the Crab once said: everything’s better when it’s wetter. Did you enjoy Fed, Actually? To thank our invaluable frontline workers – and all the people of Victoria – for their hard work and perseverance last year, we’re opening up the Big Screen for your custom messages of goodwill – just pop them in the form below and you might just see it in person at Fed Square!
