“Great way to see and learn a bit about Melbourne for free!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

I live in Melbourne but I love the this tram. It allows you to sit back and relax and see the sights of Melbourne - and its all free!
The tram goes past all Melbournes icons and you can hop on and hop off as you please or stay on for the entire circle of the city and its surrounds.

“Worth taking.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

This free tram loops around the CBD every 12 minutes during the day. It is handy to take as an orientation experience around inner Melbourne, and also get between places in the general areas of the route.
