Southern Cross Railway Station


Southern Cross Railway Station

Southern Cross Railway Station is the most important rail terminal in Victoria and has been redeveloped into a world-class public transport interchange, with fast rail connections to regional Victorian centres and new facilities for rail, taxi and bus passengers.

Now more than just a railway station, Southern Cross Station is a combination railway, shopping centre and bus terminal. The shopping centre includes a Coles supermarket and over 100 shops, bars and restaurants.

Located on Spencer Street between Collins and La Trobe Streets at the western boundary of the central business district, it is the hub of the state's regional railway network, serving as a terminus for long-distance V/Line trains.

It also serves the twice-daily Countrylink XPT service to Sydney, and The Overland to Adelaide three times per week. It has a bus station with 24-hour Skybus service to Melbourne airport.

Southern Cross is one of five stations forming the City Loop, a mostly underground railway that encircles the CBD. Southern Cross and Flinders Street are the only stations in the Loop that are above ground.

Call 1800 800 007 for information about metropolitan and regional train, tram, bus and coach services and bookings. All V/Line train and the majority of coach services operate from Southern Cross Station.

History - Southern Cross Station


A public holiday was declared so the public could witness the departure of the first passenger train from Batman's Hill Railway Station to Williamstown on 13 January 1859.

Batman's Hill Station later changed name to Spencer Street Station and finally to the present Southern Cross Station. Batman's Hill, a pleasant and wooded knoll on the north bank of the Yarra, west of Spencer Street, and where John Batman (founder of Melbourne) built a home.

A major development in the early 1890s was the completion of a viaduct linking Spencer Street and Flinders Street stations, and later with the electrification of the Melbourne metropolitan rail system, the viaduct was duplicated in 1915, providing four tracks between Spencer Street and Flinders Street.
