Before Federation Square took over as Melbourne’s central meeting place, City Square on Swanston Street held the honour of being the city’s central piazza.

Bordered by Swanston and Collins Streets, Flinders Lane and the Westin Hotel, the square is still used for festivals and events, and the addition of cafes, grassed areas and seating continue to draw the crowds.

Look for the statue of Larry La Trobe the dog and the monument to Burke and Wills.
