You’ve seen the videos on your social feeds, the ads on your TV, and the hoarding up around the city spruiking the works currently underway to build the Melbourne Metro tunnel. Well, now the time has come for us to help out with naming the new 4 state-of-the-art underground stations.

Boaty McBoatface, and Trainy McTrainface are so extremely uncreative; we know that this great city can do so much better so we’ve decided to put together a list of extremely Melbourne names that these 4 new stations could be called.

  1. Avocado Latte Station
  2. Drop Punt Station
  3. Sporting Capital Of The World Station
  4. Not Sydney Station
  5. Sea Lice Station
  6. Negative Gearing Station
  7. Smashed Avo Station
  8. Secret Hidden Bar Station
  9. Laneway Station
  10. I’m Stuck On Punt Road I’ll Be 20 Minutes Late Station
  11. Nutella Burger Station
  12. 4 Seasons In One Day Station
  13. Up There, Cazaly Station
  14. Pellegrini’s Station
  15. George Calombaris Station
  16. Victoria Bitter Station

If you’ve got a great (serious) name you’d like to suggest, head to this link and suggest away. If your suggested name ends up being a final station name you'll be in running to win a behind-the-scenes tour of the Metro Tunnel for your class if you're in school, of if you're over 18 you'll be an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the tunnel yourself.

Submissions close October 22.
