Opened in September 1854, Flinders Street Station is a regular hive of activity. The busiest suburban railway station in the Southern Hemisphere, Flinders Street Station also features a 700 metre main platform – the longest in the country. Flinders Street Station has become one of Melbourne’s most famous landmarks. The site of the first steam rail station in Australia, the Station is said to have had its layout plans mixed up with those for Bombay. Despite many attempts to update the clocks at the main entrance of the station, there has been much public campaigning to retain the original layout.
