Very easy way to get round the city, get your bearings and learn a bit about Melbourne. Look for the number 35 tram (they look quite old fashioned) that goes around the free tram area of Melbourne- clearly marked on any map you pick up....More

This has to be on everybody's Melbourne itinerary. Not only do you get a good look at the city's layout and historical (and modern) structures, but it's a really convenient, and free, way to get around.

Pretty much exactly as its name says 'City Circle Tram'. Its a free tram service that goes around the city circle. It can get a bit busy at times but worth every free cent.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
