Attraction details
Type: Trams, Transportation
Owner description: Sit back, relax and let your tram do all of the talking…Be delighted by the remarkable sights and sounds of Bendigo as your tram tells you about the golden past of the city founded on one of the world’s richest goldfields. This hop-on, hop-off tour stops throughout the city allowing you to explore many of the parks, attractions, shopping and dining facilities that Bendigo has to offer. Your Vintage ‘Talking’ Tram Tour Ticket is valid for two consecutive days, so you can hop-on and hop-off the tram as often as you like within those two days.

My partner and I had already been in Bendigo for a day or so by the time we did the Talking Tram Tour, so we had already traversed a fair bit of the route but bumping along at a calmer pace with the tram offering the commentary and history along the way was a nice way to see the town.... More

A great trip to do as an introduction to Bendigo. The stories are interesting and give insight into the history of Bendigo. Great that it is a 'Hop on hop off' system so you can park at the gold mine and use the tram to explore the city for the day. friendly drivers also. The trams themselves are beautifully restored...

In any city hop on hop off bus is always an attraction. The tram in bendigo is a highlight. An 800 metre plus walk from the railway station the whole ride is about 1 hour with stops at various attractions. We just went on a there and back. The commentary from the conductor is worth the trip alone.

This was a great way to get all the history of Bendigo. The talking ram is great. And the Conductor Peter was fabulous. In fact the driver and Peter was the icing on the cake for this ride. We didn't have much time in Bendigo and I wished we had more time in to get on and off the tram... More

Love riding on the tram, always a good way to see Bendigo and being able to get on and off and explore the attractions along the way! You need to do a tram tour at least once to tick it off your done list!

We didn't have much time in Bendigo so the trip on the tram was a good way to see the city and find out about its history. It is not cheap but by combining the ticket with other attractions it is not too bad. We were glad we did it.

We started the day at the tram museum we went on a tour and our guide Emily was very informative, I am glad we did the tour. We then hopped on the talking tram, and got to hear and see about the sites in Bendigo, the driver and conductor were also very helpful and cheerie. The stops along the way... More

Only takes an hour if you stay on the tram, but believe me you'll want to "hop on hop off" at the various places of interest. But.... if you are pushed for time in Bendigo, this is a great way to get an informative overview of the city and its history. Have your camera ready.
