I was very surprised to find how big the workshop and extent of the work carried out was. The volunteer drivers and Guide were so enthusiastic which made an interesting visit and to see the work done to restore trams, from all over the country, back to their original condition. Was very encouraging for a transport buff like me.

This is a great way to start off your Bendigo experience. We spent half the day with getting on and off the tram. Did the tour of the workshop as well. It is a fasinating place. Great to see the old trams being bought back to life. You can park near the station and do the CBD using the tram.... More

The tram was surprisingly comfortable compared to the Metro trams in Melbourne. We even managed to secure a ride on the Schaller Tram, which was decked out like... More

I combined the talking tram tour and tram depot and workshop tour. The tram ride is a lovely relaxed way to get an introduction to Bendigo. The on-board recorded commentary is very informative and, on my trip at least, this was augmented by further information given by the driver. There are several trams of different styles and decoration, which is... More

This would have to be the best way to see Bendigo and it's historical sights. With the running commentary it makes for a very pleasant tour and you are at liberty to get off and on at your leisure.
