Victoria Square, is in the centre of Adelaide City. This is a view looking north, and if you look carefully you will see two flags; one being the Australian flag and the other the Aboriginal (Australian) flag. The traditional Kaurna name for the square is Tarndanyangga.
In May 1937 the square was named after Princess Victoria, who at the time was heir to the British throne. She became Queen a month later after the death of the King. This statue of her stands in the centre of the Square.
This is a view looking south past the Three Rivers Fountain (see one of my previous posts) located near the northern end of the Square.
Until recently the Glenelg tram ran in the middle of the Square, but when the extension was made along King William Street it was routed along its western side, reclaiming a valuable amount of space for special events.
