Victoria Square is a public square in the South Australian capital of Adelaide. The square is in the centre of the city’s grid of one square mile, and was named by the Street Naming Committee on 23 May 1837 after Princess Victoria, heir presumptive of the British throne. Less than a month later the King died and Victoria became Queen.

The Kaurna (Aboriginal People) know the area as Tarndanyangga and in line with the Adelaide City Council’s recognition of Kaurna country, it is officially referred to as Victoria Square / Tarndanyangga (indigenious meaning).

A statue of Queen Victoria stands in the centre of the square. The fountain in the north of the square was designed by artist John Dowie to represent the three rivers from which Adelaide receives most of its water—the Torrens, the Onkaparinga and the Murray.

Perfect framing, such a strong "symmetry"
