Grampians National Park Small-Group Eco Tour from Melbourne

233 reviews
The jagged peaks and vast bushland of Grampians National Park lie just a few hours west of Melbourne. On this comprehensive full-day tour, take in all the natural highlights including Silverband Falls, MacKenzie Falls, stringybark forest, and Lake Bellfield; spot wild kangaroos and emus at Halls Gap; and hike to the Grand Canyon for a stunning view over Victoria Valley.

Traveling on the tram is excellent value at $5. A fun way to spend 30 minutes and see a part of Ballarat's history. The tram runs along the lake so there is lots to see while traveling. The museum is free. A few restored trams to view.

Thank you Jill for your review. COVID restrictions have required all our visitors to join the tram at the Museum instead of along Wendouree Parade and it has been very rewarding that so many have been coming to the Museum, having a look at our displays and then chosing to take a ride on the tram.

This tramway museum is a real labour of love for the dedicated volunteers & well worth the visit. There is quite a collection of trams & information about the tram’s history is thoughtfully displayed. This tramway is well worth the visit if you are visiting Ballarat on a Sunday

Not an extensive museum, but they do run trams along the lake. Good value, and good information as well. Nice to look around other trams too.

The museum is wonderful with fine examples of the old trams that used to ply the streets of this attractive city until 1971. They are beautifully maintained by a group of passionate and dedicated volunteers. An added bonus is to tide on one, Saturday or Sunday, public holidays and Victorian school holidays.
