Flinders Street Station, Melbourne
(3.7/5 based on 1,000+ 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.

  • This station has been voted the world's busiest, in business days comes to register 110 000 passengers and 1500 trains;. It was inspired by a Mumbai train station and the station name is the same as the street where it is located. It has a Renaissance style with a wonderful clock tower in its interior and a beautiful dome on the roof which is a landmark in this area.
