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.

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 Atiyah Service of alcohol is not permitted in the square. Service Times: 12pm – 2pm and 6pm – 8.30pm daily.
