2.9/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web
A vibrant, animated plaza at the heart of the city of Melbourne, the main draws of City Square are its historic buildings and lively atmosphere. One of the centers of city life in Melbourne, the square was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1980 after decades of arduous planning. The square serves as home to a number of curiosities, including the John Mockridge Fountain and a cast bronze statue of a dog titled Larry La Trobe.

  • Not a large space.... just a small square between Swanston street and Collins street. There isn't very much to see at the square itself but St Paul's cathedral is just near it and that's worth seeing. 
  • Great location to see Melbourne from. They often hold events and special events. The public toilets under the town hall are nice and clean. Easy to get to as there are trams from everywhere to here. 
  • In sit, when I went and done demonstrations by groups of Chinese people and people are handing out leaflets were everywhere. The next morning had taken luxury brand. Located at the back of St Paul's Cathedral, Starbucks. It is a little break if you don't have anything, it's a good place.
