Flinders Street Station, Melbourne

(3.6/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Is recommended as the commemorative photo spot, is in the station so no appearance remains a historic atmosphere and. It's better at night.

  • It is one of those images that you need to have your visit to Melbourne. Opposite Federation Square and St Paul's Cathedral, painted in an intense yellow colour and with its beautiful Dome, worth a visit and see the intense back and forth from the people.

  • We found it and very easy to access from many different angle, it is a big station and it is hard to believe when you look at it on how big it is.  more »
