Easy to find. On the outside of main CBD streets. Nice to ride when a rainy day. Free to ride. Old style trams.

Best value free travel to get around the city and parts of Southbank and Docklands. Comes around every 12-15 minutes and is a very convenient way to see the sights of Melbourne.

city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You

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.
