Getting There

Movies, music, and comfy seating, summery sports and sumptuous eating

We’re gearing up for the biggest and best summer we’ve ever had at Fed Square, with the most packed schedule of events, movies, music, live sport, fitness, workshops and more that’s ever crossed the square.

You can relax and revitalise at Fed Oasis, our brand-new comfy seating and shaded areas, and order food – delivered to you in the square! – from one of our diverse and wonderful restaurants, bars and cafes, and enjoy classic films, live sport and live music by local Melbourne favourites all summer long.

We’ve partnered with ACMI for an outdoor cinema silent film series – Not-So-Silent Cinema – with live soundtracks by local bands and musicians, and we’re running free fitness sessions, guided workshops and our very own twist on mindful meditation – Mindful Fed-itation, hosted by hilarious local comedians.

That’s just the start – check out the full line-up below, and we’ll see you there!
