My boyfriend and I had great fun on the Bendigo tram depot and workshop tour. The highlight of the tour was the friendliest guide placed on this earth, the lovely Tammy. She was knowledgeable beyond her years and captivated our small group with her warmth. Well worth a tour if you're in town. Thanks Tammy!!!

Having no interest in trams I was not sure about going here, however I found it really enjoyable. It was very informative and you were able to hop aboard most of the trams there. The guide was very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone doing the Talking Tram as it is worth the stop.

Very much enjoyed our trip on the Bendigo Tram. The conductor/driver were very helpful and full of interesting and informative stories. The commentary was also very good. Loved the fact that the tram goes at a slower pace than the traffic, giving you a chance to take photos.

Don't park your car behind the Country Women's Association or your car will be covered in knitting, as evidenced by the trams. Lots of fun, a great entertainment with informative and friendly staff. Take the time to get off at the far end and visit the Chinese Joss House - Darren (I hope I remembered his name right) was an... More

This tram is ridiculous. Its costs far too much and goes way to slowly. Its also quite uncomfortable and doesn't take you anywhere useful. It looks greats though, so its much better to sit and have a coffee and watch it go past than to get on it.

Thank you for your feedback, I am sorry to hear that our tram tour didn't meet your expectations. You mention that the tram doesn't go anywhere useful, however, the tram tour takes our visitors to the doors of three other tourist attractions and our central stop, drops visitors right in the heart of the city with many dining, shopping and...

Enjoyed the team ride. Ticket is for 2 days, so can hope on, hop off any time. Takes you from one end of Bendigo to the other. Free parking at the Deborah Gold Mine, which was handy, tram Depot was well worth the extra few $. Depot rebuilds and renovates trams and is a working concern, employing toadies and apprentices.
