Walk towards Market Street / Crown
It’s a very short walk in from the front of Flinders station, to walk towards the left of the front exit. On the right, you will soon see the Market Stree, on the left the Sea Life Aquarium, and a left turn under the bridge towards Crown casino and the Yarra River. Great atmosphere and is surely a great walk you must take especially if new in Melbourne. Read more about the crown casino or sealife aquarium here.
Federation Square and nearby
Not quite a walk but, Federation square in itself is a thing to do around here! Great atmosphere, lots of places to relax and sit, nice bars and cafes all around, and something always goes on here, be it music or performance or food truck, etc.
