“Flinders Street Station”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

The council have done some nice things around Melbourne but the old station is still grubby and dirty. It's a shame that the nice walk back from Southgate concludes with Flinders Street. There was paper and rubbish all over the place and it looked dirty and uncared for. It certainly wasnt a place you would want to linger. So, come on Melbourne Council, get a broom out !

“Portal to Melbourne”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

Flinders Street Station is the getting off point for a trip into the City. The Clocks are also an excellent, easy to remember meeting place. I only rate it as 3 star because inside it is quite utiliitarian, allowing you to get to your platform. Everything nice is what you see on thephoto!

“Favourite Melbourne icon.”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

The interior is reasonably good these days (except the toilets, shocking - bring back the days when we put a penny in the turnstile and the toilets were pleasant). I love the facade - best viewed while having a coffee at a corner table at Young and Jacksons.

“Very Busy”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

Very busy and complicated when you come in from the country to find your next platform. Crowds, but some nice people do help when you're in need.

“Busy”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

It was busy but very organised. I think because the building is a bit of an icon you forgive the queues - a few buskers but no beggers
