The tunnel under Flinders Street is bloody brilliant

by Alex Hallatt

Update 11th Feb: And it flooded today but people kept walking through

The tunnel from Flinders Street Station, Platform 1 has always enthralled me. First of all, it pops out by the waffle stand in Degraves Street, like some glorious secret passageway. Second, it has just sprouted a new coffee shop, which I will try, when I have my keepcup with me, as I didn’t want to take a disposable cup.

Third, it has eclectic exhibitions put on by the platform artists group. The last was on the station itself, but the current is on zines – hurrah!!

The exhibition helped me find the work of Pat Grant. Is this guy in the ACA? I hope so....

NB.There is a fab little zine store in the subterranean arcade and leafing through its contents is like being in a real life version of the internet, with crazy juxtapositions, useful info and a lot of random stuff.
