The Edge, Fed Square

The Edge is located at the centre of the Fed Square complex, near the entrance to the Ian Potter Gallery. For easy access, enter Fed Square from Flinders Street at the Atrium.

Since its opening on 26 October 2002, Fed Square has been embraced by locals and visitors alike, with over 100 million visits since its opening.

Although Fed Square’s history is short, the history of its location is far, far longer. It is the site upon which the Kulin confederacy of Aboriginal peoples – the Wathaurung, the Bunurong and the Woiworung peoples – dwelled and gathered for tens of thousands of years. The Woiworung group in particular comprised a number of clans, including the Wurundjeri, who laid claim to the area drained by the Yarra River and its tributaries. Even in the initial years after European settlement, Aboriginal clans still camped at their traditional locations on both sides of the Yarra River, near the modern-day MCG and Government House.
