Campbell Arcade, Melbourne
|North end||Degraves Street|
|South end||Flinders Street Station|
Campbell Arcade is a pedestrian arcade located in Melbourne, 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.
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.
