Tram was good but hard to work out what one to take initially. We couldn’t find a site online to find the timetable. We found a stop and worked it out from the signs.

I took this option as a hop on hop off around the city, nothing special, just a classic tram of the 50s or 60s, the driver only describes the stops and views are very limited (of course its tram!).

The free city circle tram is the great way to explore the city! No need for paying on this loop. Takes to you to all the main spots and gives you tips of where to get off. Best!

A good service that loops the City and stops near a lot of the big attractions. It can get very busy so best to try and avoid getting on at Flinders Street Station.

This is such a great initiative from Melbourne. You can hop off and on all day on this loop around the CBD, which includes a tourist commentary. Couple of things to remember - the trams are heritage which means they are beautiful but lack air...More

I can't recall the shop. Knowing the route, I can only assume it's at the Northern route near the Queen Vic Markets? But, best to google it. Mike
