LGBT+ Friendly 3 Day Tour The Grampians, Daylesford & Ballarat

This is a private LGBT+ tour experience. <br><br>Visit some of Victoria lesser know, but equally as beautiful areas. From the 'Gay Capital' of Australia - Daylesford, discover some its hidden charms, colourful locals and diverse shops and restaurants.<br><br>The tour highlight is Grampians National Park. Whilst similar to that of the Blue Mountains in Sydney, this National Park is often wrongly overlooked. It requires slightly more effort to reach, but once there, you will be glad of the effort. We will kangaroo's in the wild, experience local Aboriginal custom and visit some incredible lookouts, walking tracks and waterfalls. You really will be at one, with Mother Nature.<br><br>En-route back to Melbourne on the final day, we will stop in at the historic town of Ballarat and visit some of its best loved visitor attractions.

Not an extensive museum, but they do run trams along the lake. Good value, and good information as well. Nice to look around other trams too.

The museum is wonderful with fine examples of the old trams that used to ply the streets of this attractive city until 1971. They are beautifully maintained by a group of passionate and dedicated volunteers. An added bonus is to tide on one, Saturday or Sunday, public holidays and Victorian school holidays.

What a fantastic piece of history! The museum has over 15 vintage teams including the oldest horse drawn one. Took a ride up and down the lake ($5 A, $2 children) which is well worth the views and the facts about trams were extremely interesting for all of us (especially the children). It’s all run by volunteers and donations so please visit to keep this piece of history alive. A little gem!
