Flinders Street Station, Melbourne

(1,300+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • The station is chaotic in the middle to end of the afternoon and not the easiest place to navigate if you are not familiar.  more »
  • Loved this beautiful crafted station with its old clocks. My understanding is that they wanted to remove the clocks and replace with a digital clock....NO....please don't! It wonderful piece of histor...  more »
  • Such a lovely looking building, would have liked to have seen inside but you can not enter unless you have a ticket. This would be the place to get your ticket to Willaimtown.  more »

  • Pathetic Chips and Oreo vanilla milkshakes. Felt like drinking 7/11 Big M.
  • 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.
  • Not at all place to go for quick bite! Worst quality of chips you can have in Melbourne and still pay top dollar! What a shame!
  • 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.
  • 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.
