Melbourne’s Flinders Street Railway Station at the corner of Flinders and Swanston Streets is the oldest station in Australia (1910) although the first station on this site opened in 1854.
Over the years, Flinders Street Station has become a famous Melbourne landmark, emerging as a symbol of Victoria’s capital city and is an institution in the daily routine of nearly a quarter of a million people.
Flinders Street Station is ‘the’ meeting place for Melburnians, expressed simply as “meet me under the clocks”, a reference to the clocks above the main entrance.
The clocks at the main entrance of the station were part of the original design plans, and remain in almost the same place as they did in the early years of construction. The 13 clocks are now operated by computer and indicate train departures to suburban lines. An attempt was once made to replace them with video screens, but the outcry was enormous and therefore they have remained.
Flinders Street Station is registered under the Victorian Heritage Act. It is also listed by the National Trust.
