The tram ride was very convenient to circle around the heart of the city. Well designed and was very helpful for tourists to go around the Federation Street, Flinders Gate, Collins Street in Melbourne.

This is a great free tram but it’s difficult to hear the commentary the minute someone speaks really loudly!! So when they are talking you can’t hear a thing.

It’s an old carriage which bobbles about a lot more than the new ones. We got on a couple of minutes before a downpour so everyone rushed to close the windows and the tram fogged ups o we couldn’t see out. However, it is obviously...More

experience public transport the melbourne way and jump on a tram in the city. Tram stops are sprinkled all over the place and are for sure a more effective mode of transport around the city than a car is. Also greener. Do it.

Every city should have one. Easy way to get around the CBD. Stops in all the right spots and covers a very large area considering its completely free. Great asset to Melbourne for inner city urban transport.

It's iconic and a great way to get around Melbourne CBD, see the sights and learn some of the history. Kills an hour for free and great to people watch.

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
