    The State of Library Victoria is a comfortable place to relax, and not just to visit to read books. Located right in front of Melbourne Central Station and Melbourne Central Shopping Centre, visitors can relax around the Library’s parks and play giant chess with each other outside. The Library is especially a great place to unwind after shopping around and easy to get to by train, and inside houses a large foyer for comfortable reading and arts and music collections. 

    Make sure to visit this landmark during the spring and summertime to get a truly relaxing experience. It's especially a great place to have lunch by sitting on the lawn on a bright sunny day!


    Stay tuned to upcoming events yet to be announced.
