The free trams in the central area allow you to whizz up and down the main routes quickly jumping on and off at will. The No 35 though does the outer circle of the central area in about an hour. It is a great way...More

The inner city free tram service is an absolute gem. The largest tram network in the world I believe. What a great way to get around one the most diverse and outstandingly beautiful cities in the world.

The trams are free and are very easy to board and hop off and stop on every block I think. There are easy to read timetables at each stop and a map onboard each car.

Tried the free tram, had a long wait to get on and then very full hard to get seat then couldn't see anything! I would go on the hop on hop off bus rather as you are able to sit down and see things.

The tram is free and does a circle tour of Melbourne. There is a commentary throughout so you can see the tourist sites. However. it can be crowded and hard to hear when busy.

This is a great free transport Tram system. Even though we didn't really use it until our last day out was extremely handy. The good thing is that you can use any tram withon the 'green' zone (cbd) free of charge.

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
