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, Melbourne Edition.

It is an imposing ochre construction surmounted by a beautiful dome. Worth a little visit.
メルボルンの駅と言ったら有名なのはフリンダーストリート駅とサザンクロス駅だが、外観の美しさや、周辺の観光スポットやお店を考えればフリンダーストリートには行った方がいいでしょう。駅の下に地下道があり、くぐって小さな橋を渡り、すぐに反対側にでれます。地元の人はみな使いますが観光客は知らないで、大きい橋の方を渡り遠回りしている方を見かけます。 more »The famous train station in Melbourne is Flader Street station and Southern Cross station, but you should go to Flader Street If you think about the beauty of the exterior and the surrounding attractions and shops. There is an underpass under the station, passing through a small bridge, and immediately to the other side. All the locals use it, but tourists don't know it, and I see a person who is crossing a large bridge.
