We enjoyed our trip on the free tram it helps you get an overview of the City. The commentary on both the trams we tried wasn't working properly. One went at double speed- funny but confusing.

Route 35 tram is a great to get a feel for the area. I suggest going on an entire loop and then get on and off at things that interest you. The tram was very crowded but people were always getting on and off so...More

We had spare time, so jumped on the tram for the ride around the city. Terrific way to get around. We got off at Flinders Street station to look around. Then got back on another tram to complete the circle.

Great way to get around town for free can stay onboard and just see the sights. Very easy to negotiate around the city.

We took the tram from the train station to Queen victoria market. It's not the fastest way around as it took a 10 minute pause along the way and stop at red lights, but you can't beat free. There are a few place worth seeing...More

This is an excellent service to circle the CBD but they are very hard to come by and its always full. CBD IN Melbourne is very walkable so i preferred to walk than waste my time waiting for the free tram to come by

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

The PTV (Public Transport Victoria) website shows routes, times and has an App that despite the odd poor review was actually quite helpful. It's worth looking at as sometimes trams might run at nearby stations at more... More
