Recently abandoned and potentially to be used in the future for the light rail management team, the Campbell Arcade is a true art-demo masterpiece. Heritage listed, we rose early to check this place out before is becomes forgotten.
Snippet from Wikipedia:
Campbell Arcade is a pedestrian arcade located in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The arcade is accessible from Flinders Street station and was built in 1955 to ensure crossing between Flinders Street and Melbourne’s main train station was safer. It was completed ahead of the 1956 Melbourne Olympics.

Campbell Arcade also connects to two staircases leading to the northern and southern sides of Flinders Street. The arcade’s salmon pink tiles, black marble pillars and art deco shopfronts are its original decor. Tramlines also run directly above the arcade.
Campbell Arcade is listed under the City of Melbourne and on the Victorian Heritage Register, under the listing for Flinders Street station (H1083). The Arcade itself was specifically added to the listing in 2015, “recognising its architectural qualities and historical significance”, as the “first infrastructure to be built in the city following World War II” and as the centre of the city’s suburban commuter railway system.
Since construction it has always been a shopping arcade. Before the City Loop distributed passengers to Melbourne’s other train stations the arcade was far busier, though around 70,000 commuters still pass through of a morning. The pedestrian thoroughfare includes Lost and Found bar, a coffee shop, hairdressers, jeweller, record store, newsagent and repair shop. Between 1994 and 2015 artworks were also displayed by the resident Platform Artists Group. This has since been taken over by The Dirty Dozen, an initiative of City of Melbourne’s Creative Spaces.
