Flinders Street railway station is a railway station on the corner of Flinders and Swanston Streets in Melbourne, Australia. It serves the entire metropolitan rail network. Backing onto the city reach of the Yarra River in the heart of the city, the complex covers two whole city blocks and extends from Swanston Street to Queen Street. Flinders Street is served by Metro's suburban services, and V/Line regional services to Gippsland. It is the busiest station on Melbourne's metropolitan network, with some 92.6 million passenger movements recorded in 2011/12.

It was the first railway station in an Australian city and the world's busiest passenger station in the late 1920s. The main station building, completed in 1909, is a cultural icon of Melbourne, with its prominent dome, arched entrance, tower and clocks one of the city's most recognisable landmarks. It is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register. The Melburnian idiom "I'll meet you under the clocks" refers to the row of clocks above the main entrance, which indicate the time-tabled time of departure for trains on each line; another idiom, "I'll meet you on the steps", refers to the wide staircase underneath these clocks. Flinders Street Station is responsible for two of Melbourne's busiest pedestrian crossings, both across Flinders Street, including one of Melbourne's few pedestrian scrambles.

  2. Flinders Street Station is such an impressive icon in Melbourne. You have captured perspectives of it beautifully.
    And thank you for alerting me about the name of the flower featured in my Monday Mellow Yellows post. I have heard of Capeweed, but did not know that was the flower at Dromana beach. Pity its regarded as a pest. It is so colourful by the sands.

  3. Love he angled building in your second capture:) Your colors have come out with much more contrast ... Edit or a new camera? Many thanks for sharing this important hub of transportation with SEASONS! Have a great week!
