The area
Neighbourhood: 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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

It was great being on board 35 number tram to know Melbourne CBD and it's surrounding spots. Based on the short tour I was ready to explore the city on my own.

A great and FREE way to get around the city. A living part of our history on the old restored 'W' Class trams

Waited for the tram for 25 minutes but it did not arrive. Checked the Melbourne Public Transport website and it said that it was running a good service every 15 minutes for this service. Took another tram - not historic - along the same route. There were none of the City Circle trams to be found. That was on a Saturday early afternoon. I don’t get it??

This free public transport in Zone 1 in Melbourne CBD is a great thing for visitors to Melbourne and staying in or close to the No. 35 tram route.

A classic icon of Melbourne, as a tourist seeing Melbourne for free on this tram is a great way to find out what you want to see whilst you are in the city. You get your bearings and some ideas of what you can enjoy.
