    Place you have to visit once you reach Melbourne. It's a mixed-use development in the inner city of Melbourne.#federationsquare #specialbroadcastingservice #weekend #niceweather #tingweiproductions

    Good: location, proximity; free wifi; big TVs (for key events, NYE, fireworks, White Night, etc.); many events here & ACMI… Ideal CBD meeting place; hard to miss, easy to get to via public transport!

    You can pretty much do anything here what with the facilities made available. Really, just sitting here while sipping on a cup of coffee can really make your day.

    Melbourne is a great town! With many neighborhoods to visit- Fitzroy, St. Kilda, Melbourne CBD, Chinatown... Go for a long walk. Take a tram ride. Checkout an art museum. Admire the architecture.

    All I read here is free Wifi, but take some time and look at the ground. The most wonderful stones I have ever seen in whole Australia! Everyone is unique and they come from WA.

    Grab yourself some takeaway food and sit here to soak up the Melbourne atmosphere. You'll start to appreciate this city by just watching.

    Visit the little funny shaped square building at the corner of Flinders & Swanston Streets, this is the Visitor Info Centre & say hi to the lovely staff there and perhaps book yourself on a day tour!

    Frequently hold free art and music events here. Personal favourites include the beer and wine shows and ACMI for movies. The website has a detailed calendar for you to keep an eye on.

    There's free WiFi, though I don't use it. There's a massive screen that varies what's on it. There's also a few restaurants and very close to trams and other places.

    The wifi is next to useless if you are inside anywhere! You have to stand in the middle of the square to get any signal! It is optu$, so par for the course!

    Keep your eyes open in the Square - there's always some kind of amazing public art! At the moment (August-September 2012), don't miss the iceberg stereograms scattered around the place.

    The cobblestones are particularly good for rocking a child in a pram to sleep while you enjoy the view ( and a glass of wine!)

    Going to the ACMI events is always a great choice on the weekends. Parking on the next building at flinders st is the cheapest one.
