Flinders Street Railway Station is probably the most recognisable landmark in Melbourne and is a typical example of colonial-era architecture. The main entrance has a cluster of clocks hanging over it, and is a meeting point for locals.
Eureka Tower is the tallest residential building in the Southern Hemisphere. Climb to the top (if you have a head for heights) to get some spectacular panoramic views of Melbourne.
For all the hustle and bustle of everyday Melbourne life, head to the Queen Victoria Market. Huge and colourful, you can get just about anything you want here, including unusual souvenirs and antiques.
Flowing through the heart of the city is the Yarra – known as the "river that flows upside down" because of its brown colour, it’s actually a lot more scenic than it sounds, with some beautiful walks and picnic spots along its banks.
