Overview

Sit back, relax and let your tram do all of the talking. Be delighted by the remarkable sights and sounds of Bendigo as your tram shares entertaining stories about the golden past of the city founded on one of the world's richest goldfields. This hop-on, hop-off tour stops throughout the city giving you the opportunity to explore many of the parks, attractions, shopping and dining facilities that Bendigo has to offer. Hop off at Tram Stop No 3 to explore Australia's oldest operating Tram Depot. From trams that have been used for housing and have carried royalty, to trams that have survived two world wars, you will discover the colourful history of our iconic tram fleet and see first-hand the craftsmanship and techniques that are involved in restoring each tram to its former glory. Your Vintage Talking Tram ticket also includes the Anzac Centenary Tram which shares the story of Bendigo as it was during World War One. Through stories of bravery, resilience and courage in the face of adversity, the Anzac Centenary Tram explores the impact of WW1 on the local Bendigo community. The Anzac Centenary Tram departs at 10:00am daily from Central Deborah Gold Mine. Your tram ticket is valid for two consecutive days.

This tour was fantastic. Hop hop off if you desire but we did the whole trip without getting off. Very informative and the stop to walk through the tram depot was excellent.

This is only an hour tour. The trams are quite comfortable. The only complaint is that the first step is really high if you are getting on or off at any other stop other than the begining which is at the Deborah mine site. Very...More

The good natured and gentle humour of the driver and conductor rounded off this excellent tour. Enjoyed the operating antique tram maintenance facility where you can stop off for 10 mins to look around.
