Historical train station that is still in operation. We visited at Christmastime and the station was decorated for the holiday. Easy to use the Myki card to get on the trains and explore Victoria.

It can get really busy around Flinders street station at peak hour time (everyone rushing for trains) but it is a really beautiful building to look at from across the street, avoid going in unless you need a train, also federation square is across the road great for when big events are on

A bustling area with lots of action, Flinders Street is located in downtown Melbourne and features the iconic Flinders Street Rail Station. I remember coming here and being impressed with the station's architecture and grand size.

Flinders Street is one of the main streets in central Melbourne, running along the Yarra river for almost exactly a mile. The street is anchored by the main Train Station, the Flinders Station, a massive yellow structure.

really open modern plaza in the middle of the Central Business District; locals use it to commute from suburbs; inside is a huge metro station

Stunning heritage facade however don't peek behind the good looks!

This building is beautiful and a great photo op, and being right in the CBD easy to get to.

Inside however it is simply a functional rail station and not a very pretty one or one that works well. If you need to catch a train by all means use the station, but it is not worth having a look inside.

Avoid the toilets at all costs!

It's an icon of the city... central to so much of the city. It's got a hustle and energy that is electric. Usually there are buskers entertaining out front, and in the summer it's full of travellers. For those who aren't familiar with a transit system that is zone based, take the time and ask a local which ticket and plan you should get. It'll save you some transit problems should they 'check your card'.

MOVIE SPOT! This historic Melbourne street was used for Spielberg's miniseries, THE PACIFIC. You may recognize some of the buildings. You can ride the tram here from the center of Melbourne... Below is a link of video someone posted on youtube of the filming happening on Flinders Street.
