Flinders St Station
207 Flinders St, Flinders St Station, is one of Melbourne's most important and
recognisable landmarks, particularly when lit up at night. Its extensive scale,
overall unity and gross exaggerated expression are unique in Australia.
It is an essential part of the city scape and socially important as a traditional
meeting place under the clocks having been the arrangement of choice for
generations of Melburnians.
Flinders Street Station comprises a vast complex of station facilities, offices and
platforms. Its design was the result of a competition held in 1899, providing for a
giant roof over the platforms. Work commenced in 1900 and the main structure
was completed in 1909, the verandahs and booking office in 1910.
Flinders St Station provides wheelchair access from Flinders St and there is an
accessible toilet, see Chapters 1 3 on Transport and Parking for train access
