Been past through this building many times, was attracted by its outlook when first time I saw it.. Yeah, the building that I talking about is - Flinders Street Railway Station. It’s stands at the corner of Flinders and Swanston Streets Melbourne and is the oldest city station in Australia, built in 1854.
Flinders Street Station is the central railway station servicing Melbourne and is a city icon, and historical landmark with its large dome, unique color and beautiful, grand Baroque architecture. The bright colors and architectural lines contrast with the surrounding city buildings and developments.
This is one of the most photographed place in Melbourne hundreds of people are taking a photo of this grand edifice. The domes and clock tower give the building a dominant civic presence. At night time the building is well lighted and its strategic illumination ensures that the building continues to catch the eye.
The central railway station for Melbourne, is not only the hub of public transport for the city, but also an historic and cultural landmark
It is easily one of Melbourne’s number one icons with its stunning grand scale design and location
The steps under the station's famous domed clock tower has long been the most popular meeting place for Melbourneans coming into the city
