Flinders Street Railway Station

It is located on the corner of Flinders and Swanston, the city’s oldest train station. Built in 1854, the station serves the entirety of the Melbourne metropolitan rail and a few selected National Rail services to eastern Victoria. In the 1920s, Flinders Station was the world’s busiest train station and the terminus of the first-ever Australian Railway Line (Port-Melbourne). Its distinctive Edwardian façade was inaugurated in 1909 and has become a cultural icon of the Victorian Capital. However, legend has it that the building’s exotic characteristics were initially meant for Mumbai’s railway station and that they got swapped in the post.
