Time Out Melbourne

When Melburnians want to take a break from complaining about the weather, they start whinging about Melbourne's 'Meeting Place', Federation Square. Love it or hate it, there's always something happening - farmers' markets, free films on the big screen, art and craft displays, wine and food exhibitions, and live music.
