The Art Deco Clock Found In Melbourne

You are Here: Home | Art Deco Interior Design | Art Deco Clock

You can find examples of deco clocks on buildings scattered throughout Melbourne and its close by, neighbouring suburbs.

Country town halls, factories, stores, library buildings and schools sometimes proudly display the deco clock on their outside tower or on their interior walls.

These pieces of Australian history can be original art deco pieces or reproduced to researched specifications.

The first experience that you may come across is right in the heart of the city at Flinders Street Station.

Here you will find, not only a beautiful clock tower but a row of deco clocks displaying the times that trains will arrive and depart.

Melbourne's Town Hall Town provides you with unique art deco architecture. Part of this structure is the Clock Tower, standing high over Swanston Street. 

The Myer store in Bourke Street has an excellent example of this on the facade of its building.

Wander through the Royal Arcade and you will find a beautiful example of a clock being guarded over by Gog and Macog. 

There is a huge clock in the plaza at Melbourne Central. Stand opposite it and watch the workings as it strikes the hour.
