You’ll be in awe as you are guided through the 1903 Depot & Workshop, dwarfed by the many heritage trams which live there, each with their own story to tell. From trams that have been used for housing and have carried royalty, to trams that have survived two world wars, you will discover the colourful history of our iconic tram fleet. Become immersed in the craftsmanship of each tram as you see first-hand the techniques that are involved in restoring heritage trams to their former glory. You will be astounded to see how each tram is meticulously restored by hand.
Afterwards, take a tour on one of these beautifully restored trams and see the remarkable sights of Bendigo.
