This tram is great if you're exploring Melbourne on foot, just hop on and hop off! It was free last time I used it not sure if it stil is.

Took me a while to figure out the tram line but once it's done, it's easy to navigate. Great way to get around the various city sites.

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

Hi... Im staying in docklands. How do I make the difference between the clockwise and anticlockwise route of the city circle tram ? Is it different spot to catch the tram ? Also, how long will the next tram come to the same spot ?
