I enjoy the free city circle tram from Pensione hotel to chinatown in melbourne. Then I went to the library to read newspaper. The full tram ride took about 1 hour. The tour is free and fun

It's a very convenient way to get around the city especially since the city streets seem to appear on a grid and the tram stop at each end of the street. It's free and some of the carriages even have audio guides. It can get jam packed though but again... it's free.

Excellent service for residents as well as tourists. Free transport to all places within and near CPD. Every city should have one!

As an Englishman, I love to moan. But anyone who moans at a free and informative mode of transport in a city centre, especially Melbourne, needs to re-evaluate how they score attractions.

I appreciate that the transport is free but you get the feeling that the large diversion to docklands is a ploy to get tourists to shop there.
