This attraction is well worth the time and effort. It is principally volunteer run and shows the passion. The trip is approximately an hour long and meanders around the main attractions of Portland and narrated by conductors on the tram. Well done.

Take a ride on the tram through Portland. It starts at the museum, that is simply set up, but has an amazing display of rocks and a couple of working rail layouts. The tram journey trundles along the foreshore and returns to where it starts. There is an open and enclosed carriage for use. The conductors is your guide and also undertakes the conductor duties as the ride progresses. The staff are all volunteers and a wealth of knowledge.

We hadn't planned on doing the tram tour but it was a great experience - the volunteers are very keen and knowledgeable and it was interesting to hear and see some of the history of Portland.
