Not too far out of the city, the St Kilda Tramway Museum showcases the history of light rail transport in South Australia. Regular short distance tram journeys are available on restored vehicles. Drop into the local hotel for an excellent meal and an extensive wine list.

This was my first visit to the tramway museum, I am embarrased to be a local and not to have known about this place!! The volunteer staff are friendly and knowledgable. For $10 you can ride the trams to the playground as many times as you like and it's a great place to have a picnic lunch, or walk across... More

Okay, maybe trams aren't everybody's cup of tea, but this place is still really cool. Yeah, it may have some strange opening hours (Sundays and Public Holidays 12:00 to 5:00) and it is not the easiest place to get to if you don't have a car, but it is still really cool. They have a heap of old (and one... More

The address for this leads you to a bus stop next to a detention centre and an empty car park. The attraction is actually 40 minutes away IN ST.KILDA. was nice way to spend 20 minutes walking around looking for it though.

A bit neglected (huge spiderwebs on the trolley buses!), but with quite interesting collection and informative displays. A must for families, there's a nice ride included to the kids playground :)

This place is awesome fun for kids and adults alike. Make sure to take the short ride on the train and catch 'Thomas' during school holidays.

Wonderful collection of old trams, one can access them. Many static displays, best of all actual tram rides included in admission cost, which is not expensive. Interesting area of St Kilda nearby. Not to be missed.

Interesting museum, with at least one example of each of Adelaide's historical tram models on display. Display boards provide information about the trams and Adelaide's former tram system. Tram rides were operating every 20 minutes on a short run to the St Kilda playground and return. Unlimited rides were included in entry price. 3 different tram models were operating the... More
