Before Federation Square took the honours, Flinders Street Station was Melbourne’s favourite meeting place, hence the catchphrase ‘meet me under the clocks’.
Flinders Street Station is Australia’s oldest train station, and with its distinctive facade and green copper dome it’s a city icon. Takeaway stands line the concourse, and the upper floors were purpose-built to house a library, gym and a lecture hall, later used as a ballroom.
Flinders Street is the busiest suburban railway station in the southern hemisphere, with over 1500 trains and 110,000 commuters passing through each day. Listed on the Victorian Heritage Register, its 708-metre main platform is the fourth longest railway platform in the world.
