This is the way to get around the city. It’s free within the CBD. If you are traveling further afield buy a Miki card.

Great way to get around the CBD in Melbourne and if you miss one tram the next one soon comes along.Depending on the time of day it can some times be very full and you may have to stand.

So frequent, fast and efficient. Love the trams and Melbourne has far less congestion because of them.

Central Business District
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
