The talking tram tour takes in six places of interest across Bendigo, it is inexpensive as the tickets last for 2 days and you can hop on and off where you want. We combined ticket with the Central Deborah Mine Experience. Ecellent value

This is the oldest running tram and tramway in Australia (And I think they also said the world). The tour is really nice albeit a bit expensive. But knowing that you are supporting a little piece of history I highly recommend you do this. The tram will take you throughout bendigo and you can also hope on and hope off... More

I really enjoyed the gentle relaxed pace and the voiceover which described the history of this old goldfields town. Everyone on the tram with me seemed to be having a really good time. Great activity for families and people of all ages, especially if you have an interest in history.

The newly opened Exchange Hotel has taken over the running of the Tramcar Restaurant this year. Whilst not as lavishly decorated as the Melbourne equivalent that we experienced earlier this year, the attention by the staff was more personal, very typical of many country experienced by the locals. The limited menu choices were very satisfactory, given the limited preparation area... More

This trip, conducted by entertaining and informative volunteer conductors and drivers, brought back memories of when trams ran in Brisbane. The way the tramway is run and preserved by volunteers is simply awesome. Well done guys.

The Bendigo heritage tram is well worth a ride. It starts at the old gold mine, and you can do a tour of the mine (to various levels) which is also a very interesting activity. The guides are knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Highly recommended.

Much like a W class tram so not VERY exciting for Melbournites but our tram was beautifully restored. The commentary was informative and clear. The tram stops are actually well placed as a limited public transport but too dear and too infrequent. If they had two trams going would be better. Having bought our tickets for the experience we then... More
