view web site ›'s insider take:

This architecturally striking cultural complex in City Centre is built around an undulating paved area, which is encircled by bars, cafés, and restaurants, including celebrity chef Michael Lambie's much-lauded Taxi. The space is a favored warm-weather hangout for Melbournians, and often hosts concerts, mass screenings of sports events, and more. Flanking the Square's soaring atrium is the Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, with its extensive collection of Australian art, and the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), where you can discuss, create, or watch videos, games, and films. Champions: The Australian Racing Museum & Hall of Fame, on the opposite side of the square, houses an impressive taxidermy model of Australia's most famous racehorse, Phar Lap.
