A useful way to get around the CBD The seats were not very comfortable. There was a partially audible sound track, describing the area the tram was approaching.

We’ve never before experienced public transportation that was free! It was a great way to get oriented and the commentary as we passed sites was appreciated!

The city circle tram is a great way to get around the Melbourne CBD for free. The stops are clearly announced before arrival. You do not have to tag on or off on this circle.

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
