If you stay in Melbourne for a few days and stay around downtown the city tram sure can help. But we stayed in Melbourne just for a few hours. From the cruise ship terminal it's too far to walk (about an hour.) We had to...More

it is very convenience and free of charge to use City Circle Tram for sight seeing. In the past, No 35 is free to bring you to Victoria Market but now within the city, all the trams are free which is good for tourists.

We boarded the tram and got seats at once. The whole trip is well worth doing, free but sometimes very crowded, and uncomfortable for older or disabled people. The commentary is good and we learnt about Melbourne’s history and main attractions. All trams are free...More

tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the

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
