Gateway to Melbourne and the regions

It links interstate, regional and suburban trains and coaches in Melbourne and offers connections to major airports, tram and taxi services.  It is the key interface of the Melbourne CBD and Docklands, in the fastest growing area of the city, and is the busiest multi-modal transport hub in Victoria.

The station interfaces with the nearby 56,000 seat Marvel Stadium via the Bourke Street Bridge, with additional patrons passing through the facility during major Melbourne events. It includes over 50 retail tenancies including fast food, a supermarket, Asian hawker hall, a licensed premises and the Spencer Outlet Car Park with 780 spaces.
