Free, gets people around the CBD. Great service. Can’t understand/hear commentary at times. Crowded at times. Not bad for a free transport!

The City Circle Tram is a very convenient way to explore the city. We first used it to get to know our way around the city then shopping at Docklands and a visit to the Melbourne goal. No charge and helpful commentary.

A perfect way to see the beautiful city of Melbourne at your own pace. I travelled the full loop and then started to hop off with the attractions that particularly interested me. Something to see for everyone.

The free tram is an old traditional tram and may be difficult to climb onboard . The new trams are wheelchair accessible and it is not expensive to travel on them.
