Flinders Street Station, Melbourne

3.6
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.

Characterized by yellow exterior and a dome-shaped roof, stood out conspicuously. Appearance is very retro, was modernized the station. (Automated ticket machines were installed. ) Is multiple clock hung on the front entrance and the train at the time of our time. Now thing and just an ornament. If you go into billboards. Facilities utilizing the old station building was in the streets of Europe and throughout Melbourne. Flinders Street station at night also had a presence.
