Southern Cross Station, Melbourne - Australia

Melbourne happens to have not one, but two of my favourite trains stations in the world. The first is Flinders Street Station, and the other is Southern Cross station. The two stations were built about 100 years apart and they are both unique in their architectural style. I like Southern Cross for its wave-shaped roof and how it opens out onto Spencer Street. Whenever I return to Melbourne the station is usually the first place I see in the city as the airport bus terminates here.
