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.
