Owner description: 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. Hop off at Tram Stop No 3 to explore Australia's oldest operating Tram Depot. From trams that have been used for housing and have carried royalty, to trams that have survived two world wars, you will discover the colourful history of our iconic tram fleet and see first-hand the craftsmanship and techniques that are involved in restoring each tram to its former glory. Your Vintage Talking Tram 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.

“Pleasant Food & Sights of Bendigo”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

The Bendigo Restaurant Tram was a great way to see historical sections of Bendigo lit up at night. The food (4 courses) was very good and the service was pleasant and efficient.

Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Although a bit pricey we enjoyed the tram trip. Got some good information as well as a nice way to travel around the main street and beyond.

“Good introduction to Bendigo”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

The talking tram is a hop-on hop-off experience, so while the trip takes an hour, allow more time because you'll want to get on and off. The restored trams are fun to ride and the commentary is interesting and informative. You get to see the main highlights of Bendigo.

“You will need more time than you think”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We did Bendigo on a day trip from Melbourne. It is a two hour drive, most of it on freeway.
The tram was the highlight of the trip. The drivers are courteous and helpful, the trams, iconic masterpieces of a bygone day. They start at one end of the town and pretty much goes right through it. Start at the former gold mine and finish at Joss house. A Chinese Temple dating back to the 1890's. You can get on or off at various stops through the town. A worthwhile experience, to share.

“A must do in Bendigo”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

The restored trams provide an historic perspective of the town and a convenient mode of transport to the main attractions with the Chinese joss house at one end, and the Central Deborah at the other.
