"Do I put this tip under 'transportation?" I thought. Flinders Street Station seems to be so much more than a train station though - it is a major Melbourne landmark and boasts a long list of statistical oldest, busiest and longest (Australias oldest city station, Australias longest platfrom and the Southern Hemispheres busiest station). This striking building, built in the 1850s and sitting on the banks of the Yarra river, features in much of Melbournes tourism literature and is probably in most visitors photo albums - no surprise really as it is a beautiful building. It is also a handy point of reference when finding your way around the city by tram. Arranging to meet a friend in Melbourne? Apparently under the tower clocks is the place.
