Landmarks + Buildings

Melbourne’s rich history and innovative nature means that when it comes to landmarks and buildings, visitors can enjoy the juxtaposition of both the old and new, all with a distinct Melbourne character. With Melbourne Now, you can keep informed on the best historic and modern Melbourne landmarks to visit during your next stay. 

A perfect place for visitors to view both the old and new of Melbourne’s landmarks is from Federation Square. This central meeting point and iconic Melbourne landmark not only offers visitors a unique spectacle, but is also home to the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV), the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), restaurants, bars and much more. With modern, geometric shapes, contrasting against the surrounding heritage style buildings of Flinders Street Station and St Paul’s Cathedral, Federation Square is a prime example of Melbourne’s melting pot of old and new landmarks and buildings.
