Flinders Street Station

Historic Building in City Centre

If ever there were a true symbol of the city, Flinders St station would have to be it. Built in 1854, it was Melbourne’s first railway station, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a Melburnian who hasn’t uttered the phrase ‘Meet me under the clocks’ at one time or another (the popular rendezvous spot is located at the front entrance of the station). Stretching along the Yarra, it's a beautiful neoclassical building topped with a striking octagonal dome.

The grand old dame’s underground tendrils connect the city’s north with its south, with underpasses (such as Campbell Arcade) linked to Southbank via a pedestrian bridge.
