Flinders Street Station

Flinders Street Station is the hub of Melbourne’s suburban rail network and for many years has been Melbourne’s major landmark. The clocks on the corner of this ornate station have been the favourite meeting place for generations of Melburnians.

V/line trains to Bairnsdale and the Latrobe Valley depart from here, but all other V/line rail services depart from Southern Cross Station.

    Trains for Richmond usually go all the way around the city loop first.

    Go through the underground passage and admire all the beautiful shops. And don’t forget to check out the magic Old signs.

    The trains are terribly terribly run and PTV should be replaced... but I like the location of this station, a few little shops in it and it’s close to trams to go further up into the city

    Most loop trains start from Flinders so you can normally get a seat.

    Choo Choo, Welcome to the underbelly station ! Steer clear of the toilets here if you don't wanna catch anything nasty, oh and please turn down your silly songs.

    There are at least two contactless payment myki machines here. One on Flinders and one near the tram stops on St Kilda.

    It's the centre of everything you can take the train to everywhere from there! There are many places near the station plus the federation square!

    Ok the toilets are a horrible place to be but such a bustling busy port with more than enough transport to get you everywhere.
