A must see for any rail/tram enthusiast. This centre displays Sydneys tram history very well incorporating a number of preserved trams and buses. Jump aboard one of these preserved trams for a historic journey down the former Royal National Park branchline to the former terminus. Overall I had a great time here and helped support a wonderful group of volunteers.

The museum (run by volunteers) is a very interesting place. Whether you are old (and can reminisce about what it was like in Sydney when there were trams running) or whether you are young (and can inspect and experience what trams were like as transport), this is a good place to visit. The museum of trams is extremely well laid out - and the trams have been beautifully renovated. It is not at all boring - but fun to walk around and look at the different trams (those used as transport in all the different times of Sydney's history) but also to see the ones used to transport prisoners to gaol, etc. There are tram rides - one to Sutherland and another to the Royal National Park. Both are well worth doing, so as to experience tram travel - but also to ride through the Australian bush of the National Park There is a souvenir shop and a little kiosk at the site. The kiosk only sells cups of tea and ice creams, soft drinks and take away pies and sausage rolls. However, there is a really lovely picnic area with comfortable seats and tables (covered to shield from sun or rain) where you can partake of the lunch or morning/afternoon tea you can bring with you.

We were on a coach tour yesterday, and went to the Sydney Tramway Museum. I am not really in to this sort of museum, but have to say that it was really interesting, particularly the photographs of the old trams. We also went on a tram right across the Pacific highway which was good fun making all the cars stop!!!!! Our guide was excellent and I would recommend a visit for any age group

This place takes the visitor back to the olden days of Sydney when trams trundled the streets. On Sundays trams run into the nearby Royal National Park giving a good short trip where the local birdlife & possibly a wallaby can be seen.There are also a few historic buildings which have been transported & rebuilt onsite.

I have taken a scout group on one occasion and my grand kids on another. This is a unique and worthy trip. It runs on "the smell of an oily rag", which means it runs because of the passion and enthusiasm of its volunteers and the donations of visitors. The museum experience is interesting, informative and eye opening. The actual trip on the tram is exciting and lots of fun- especially for kids
