Flinders Street Station, Melbourne

Landmark
Arguably the defining landmark of Melbourne, Flinders Street Station is a colonial-era railway station at the junction of Flinders and Swanston Streets. The main entrance is known for several clocks hanging over it and is a popular meeting spot. "Meet you under the clocks" is an oft-repeated local phrase. This was the first railway station in an Australian city and the world's busiest passenger station in the late 1920s. Today, the building is a cultural icon, with its prominent dome, arched entrance, and the recognizable clocks. You can easily access this historic landmark, which is responsible for two of Melbourne's busiest pedestrian crossings, from almost anywhere in the city by car or subway.

  • Travelled to Belgrave, Bonbeach, Brighton Beach, Chelsea from Flinders Street Station. It's like the heart of Melbourne.  more »
  • I'm a local, and Flinders St Station is one of those places you take for granted - it is busy with commuters, has a fantastic facade and street presence, strong presence of Safety Officers, but ultima...  more »
  • We were up from Tas. and needed to move around, staying close to here we used the station to get train to Williamstown. Easy to navigate by following the clear signage.  more »

  • Vegetarian everything. But don't tell the meat eaters, cause they won't know. The hotdogs are good and burgers as well. Of course the Chip (Fries) are excellent.
  • The onion rings are really good and the fries were okay, but the chicken bites/nuggets were really bad. They also mixed up our orders. I don't think I would order here again.
  • Disgusting, the sauce tasted like it curdled. The chips were soaking wet in oil, absolutely horrid I threw it all out and was starving. The small meal was like 11 dollars and was tiny.
  • Mmm! Tasted just crispy enough and super fresh. Great snack stop
  • Chicken burger: Stale bun, and with the exception of dripping with excessive amounts of American Mustard the only discernible flavour was salt. Paid $9 for a premium burger; received less quality than a $3 McDonalds burger
