Wow, in the center of the city trams are free and very reliable - not too crowded and they call out the stops. Circle tram is a tour on top of getting you around.

We took a train from Mitcham , to the bustling City. After a longish ride, we arrive at the main station. We alight, and exit through the warmth of the station, and into the street. We found our route to get to The Victoria market....More

Old-style tram that takes you on a set circuit in the centre of the CBD. This used to be more useful, however now there is a 'free tram zone' in the CBD area that makes this City Circle Tram less needed for a free ride,...More

How easy it was to find our way around Melbourne using the public and FREE tram. We could ride it to see what was on offer to visit and then decide where we wanted to go

Travelling around the CBD? The most efficient and quickest way is to make use of the City Circle Tram. It's totally free and easy to get on and off.

If you are visiting melbourne for the first time, take the free city-circle tram. Hop-on and hop-off as you like. You can easily spot all touristy places from the tram. It takes around 1 hour to circle the city.

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

The free tram is an old traditional tram and may be difficult to climb onboard . The new trams are wheelchair accessible and it is not expensive to travel on them.
