Southern Cross Station

Southern Cross, one of Melbourne’s major railway stations and transport hubs, is located on Spencer Street in the western corner of the city’s Central Business District. Named Spencer Street Station when it first opened in 1859, this historic destination once served the city’s best-working trains exclusively. 1894 marked the beginning of passenger services, however, and by 1960, much of the old transportation structures were demolished—a new modern train station was built. Today, this Melbourne attraction, renamed Southern Cross, is the third-busiest station in the city and serves major regional networks including the V/Line, Countrylink XPT services to Sydney, and Overland Rail Services to Adelaide.

  • Sink your incisors into delicious tortillas, baguettes, and focaccias, and wash these down with a steaming cup of espresso at Rojo Bar and Café, located at Southern Cross Station, Melbourne.
  • Explore a sea of over 120 fashion brands, many of which are big-name designer labels, at the Spencer Street Fashion Station.
  • Pick your favourite mouth-watering Australian sweets and chocolates amongst old-school candy-store ambience at Sugar Station in Melbourne’s Southern Cross Station.

Southern Cross Station is perhaps the best-connected transportation hub in all of Australia. All V/Line, Overland, and Countrylink XPT trains run to this station. The bus terminal below the shopping complex is connected by Skybus Super Shuttle buses from Melbourne Airport, as well as several other local, regional, and interstate carriers. These service providers include V/Rail coach services, Firefly Express coaches, Greyhound Australia, Premier interstate coach Services, and Sunbus Shuttle bus services from Avalon Airport. Southern Cross Station is less than a 5-minute walk from the nearby Flinders Street Station, which is close by to several local metro trains.
