The vintage tram ride covers 1.3km of original line through the beautiful Botanical Gardens by the western side of tranquil Lake Wendouree and takes about 20 minutes.
At the tram depot, located at the south end of the Gardens, there is a free museum display of photographs, videos, tramway memorabilia and our souvenir and book shop. The Depot is open when volunteer staff are available and usually every afternoon from about 4pm.
The Tramcar fleet, including Horse Tram No. 1 and our workshops can be viewed by Visitors. An inspection can be arranged when our volunteers are available or by prior arrangement – see contact details.

For groups picnicking in the gardens prepaid tickets to ride on the tram are available in advance.
