This February, Fed Square is transforming into Fed Beach: a vibrant, seaside resort with deckchairs and cabanas, free sliders and ice creams, live music, an open-air cinema screening cult summer films and a sandy beach!
Hot off the back of the Australian Open and right in the midst of Fed Square's ongoing Summer of Sport, Fed Beach is bringing something unprecedented, new and exciting to the square for 2 weeks only.
Fed Beach comprises 2 rows of deckchairs and 2 private cabanas, arrayed in front of a stylised beach, in addition to oversized deckchairs scattered throughout the square.
Inspired by the ultra-Instagram-friendly accommodation designs of Bali, Thailand, Miami and more, Fed Beach is designed for you to show off your best self!

To celebrate the launch on Friday February 7th, Ice Creams and Sliders are available to purchase onsite from Popstic and Sliders On Tyres respectively, in addition to Fed Square's permanent bars, cafes and restaurants.
Prior to the double feature that night of Surf's Up and Puberty Blues, there will be a live acoustic performance by Ernest Aines from 4 pm-6 pm and during the show, a pair of pranksters dressed as gigantic seagulls will flock to Fed Beach for photos with all in attendance. There will also be giant lifeguards on stilts, representatives from Lifesaving Victoria taking donations to their organisation and a hunky insta-worthy lifeguard to watch over the beach!
Fed Square will also be giving away free Popstic ice cream for 100 visitors on launch day (from 5 pm 7 February) - check our socials that day for a code phrase! And then from 7 pm that night our slider and chips giveaway begins for the first 100 people to show us a selfie taken at Fed Beach, posted on Facebook and/or Instagram and location-tagged at Fed Square!
