Hear the story of Bendigo as it was during World War One aboard one of Bendigo's famous Vintage 'Talking' Trams.
Tram No. 45, the Anzac Centenary Tram, went into service in Melbourne in 1914 and was used between 1914-1918 by Melbourne's service men and women who were heading off to assist in the war effort.
Like many other similar regional towns of the time, WW1 left an indelible mark on Bendigo, not only on those who went to war, but also on their families at home. Almost 5,000 Bendigonians contributed to the war effort and of those a staggering 2,972 lost their lives.
