A Melbourne Tradition: Meeting Under the Flinders Street Station Clocks
"I'll meet you under the clocks."
It's a phrase you'll hear thrown around Melbourne by locals all the time, but what does it mean?
Flinders Street Station is not only a Australian icon but it's Melbourne's heart. Being the Metropolitan train hub, with a major tram stop out the front doors and at the end of St Kilda Road, meeting "under the clocks" is an easy place for people to wait (with comfortable concrete steps to act as a seat!) or meet people.
So who are you going to ask to "meet under the clocks" when you visit Melbourne next?

The heart of Melbourne
Coming from the bush - Hurstbridge, Australia - by train one enters from Flinders Street Station to the heart of Melbourne. This city is beautiful in its old world charm mixed with eclectic modern architecture. Just a delightful sight for the senses.
