The Mission

Welcome to Station Ideation, a ground-breaking classroom mission based in Melbourne’s new Town Hall Station, part of the Metro Tunnel rail line which will open to the public in 2025. Using Minecraft: Education Edition, you will be one of the first to travel through this newly released world.

On your journey through the station, the Metro Tunnel design team will invite you to join them in transforming a space to meet the needs of all future passengers. As you explore there will be so much to be inspired by including, creative design solutions that showcase history and culture and support passenger wellbeing, station accessibility, time management and station sustainability. Students, talk to your teacher today about taking part in the mission.

We can't wait to see your amazing design solutions!
