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. Flinders Street Station is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • This is a very busy station in the heart of Melbourne. The majority of people will just use it as a transport hub, but the architecture of the building is impressive, and worth a look when in the area

  • Super nice! The architecture is cool and the station retains many dated design features which create an awesome atmosphere, like the clocks. The exterior lights up at night, which made me super excited when I saw it. It was awesome. The trains arrive and depart on time, navigating it is easy thanks to the clear signs, and there are toilets and restaurants inside which is neat. Nice!
  • Must visit for tourists. So much history.
