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 shares entertaining stories 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 giving you the opportunity to explore many of the parks, attractions, shopping and dining facilities that Bendigo has to offer.

Your Vintage Talking Tram Tour ticket also includes the Anzac Centenary Tram which shares the story of Bendigo as it was during World War One. Through stories of bravery, resilience and courage in the face of adversity, the Anzac Centenary Tram explores the impact of WW1 on the local Bendigo community. The Anzac Centenary Tram departs at 10:00am daily from Central Deborah Gold Mine.

Your tram ticket is valid for two consecutive days.

I took my girls on the talking tram with a friends' little kids as well. Turns out we rode the same day as a mass anti-mosque rally, which did not dampen the experience one iota. The trip was informative and easy and the kids loved it.

Great way to get a feel for Bendigo and learn some history from the driver. You can use the tram to stop off at places like the Gold Mine or the Joss House, or just enjoy the round trip. Interesting experience for kids from Sydney who have perhaps never seen a tram. Plenty of stops along the way and you... More

Enjoyed the first tram of the day, Anzac tour, then we partook in the second team trip more information about the town. Enjoyed both. The volunteers who drive and operate the train are extremely pleasant and informative. Thank you for a fun morning.

Our visitors are from Amsterdam, so trams were right up their street. The commentary is good; and the driver coped well with some oncoming cars.

It was my last day in Bendigo ans I hadn't seen much of the town. I jumped on at the start and went to the end and back. You get different information both ways. It was really interesting but a lot of the times it was hard to hear over the tram. I also had two women across from me... More

The Conductors are very helpful and friendly and are a great asset to the service. The trams are well preserved and presented. The commentary is very useful and gives passengers an incite into the history of Bendigo. My Grandson thought the trip was fantastic.

Bought ticket at the Tourist Information Centre. Good value as it lasts for 2 days and is a 'hop on hop off' route. This means you can use it to get round to see all the attractions in Bendigo. Automated information guide but our driver would add additional information and was happy to answer technical questions about the trams and... More
