Swanston St Forecourt

Ultra-flexible outdoor space in the heart of Melbourne’s transport hub

Located between Fed Square and the Swanston St tram stops, directly opposite Victoria’s busiest and most populated train station and soon to be immediately adjacent to Fed Square’s own Town Hall Station, the Swanston St Forecourt is a hub of ceaseless public activity.

Schoolchildren gather nearly every day on the nearby steps as part of Victoria’s various city excursion programs and tens of thousands of commuters pass by it daily. The value of its foot traffic and eyeballing is nearly inestimable and it firmly occupies a chief spot as one of Fed Square’s most desirable venues.
