Melbourne is so easily accessible due to these free trams that run constantly. Has contributed to far less traffic congestion like other cities in Australia. A real part of Melbourne culture. Makes Melbourne such a fun and safe place for families.

Every city should follow Melbourne with free transport in the city cirlce, fantastic. Also, it is so easy to get around...a bit little New York and a grid layout to make it easier.

Central Business District
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

Hi. The trams travel around the cbd area which would be a few kilometres from the cruise ship terminal. Not being from Melbourne I couldn’t really say the exact distance and which would be the closest tram stop sorry
