new to town and travelling to the country

It was easy to buy a ticket and find the train - but for no hassle and a more peaceful trip pay the extra and go first class.

The architecture is absolutely gorgeous. It's a hive of activity with all sorts of people and buskers. I really enjoyed the beauty of the building and it's right across the road from Federation Square.

We stayed right across from the station and even used it to walk underneath to the river. Beautiful old architecture and building. Great location and you can use it to go off in so many directions for the city. Easy to get a taxi in the area and lots of options for meals or supermarkets if you get hungry, especially... More

travelled to flinders street station many times during my stint in Melbourne - travelled from Box Hill and it was so easy. Even with no conductors I made it several times. The station is very grand and the main areas is just opposite

Flinder Street Station is an amazing architecture visited by many locals and visitors in Melbourne. It is clean and the location is perfect. At night time there is a street performer(s) who can be really good. The tram is a free ride to a certain destinations.

Flinders Street Station is one of the oldest and most iconic attractions in Melbourne. It is a great place to start a tour of Melbourne either by foot or by tram.

Flinders Street Station is right out of a 19th, early 20th century movie set. It has been the heart of Melbourne's transit system forever. A busy, exciting place. Fun to just walk around and thru.

so iconic to Melbourne, stays to be the designated waiting/meeting place when in the city, it has been renovated and now has the space for the hundreds of people using the trains for transport. Presence of coffee shops, newsagency, public toilets (can be improved) and info desks for out of towners or non-locals. Step outside and you are in the... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
