Oh what a shame - I am so disappointed to finally visit Melbourne and find the entire Flinders Street Station covered up. Not even a glimpse of stone left uncovered to hint at the beauty of the building. So be warned if you plan to...More

It’s just a central train station but it’s architecture is beautiful and an icon of Melbourne. Unfortunately the homeless have chosen to reside along the side way. Although they are not dangerous it does bring the area down.

Birthday shopping for my son. Much easier to catch a train than drive to city. Flinders street station is the best station if you want to visit the heart of the city. Very close to mcg federation square and most other attractions in Melbourne.

A busy place that is hard to keep clean. The building’s architecture is iconic and the location is central. Not easy to navigate to find one’s way around.

Flinders Street Station is always a hive of activity and is a very busy place!! Reasonably easy to catch a train from here (easier than Southern Cross) just make sure you read the platform boards!!!!

Although currently being renovated (painted) the building is iconic but sadly under utilized. The train station itself is nothing special and could be significantly better and it is understood some work is planned around the platform and other areas which is about time.

Beautiful and iconic. Traditional to meet friends ‘under the clocks’. Flower stalls, coffee and a quick bite, it’s all here. You can’t come to Melbourne and not have a photo taken here.

A wonderful old building that divides Melbourne between old and new - on one hand, the hub of Melbourne where locals and visitors alike come to the city. On the other hand, it bridges the gap of what Melbourne was as a CBD and the...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
