This is the last horse drawn tram in the world pulled by Clydesdale horses over to Granite island where you can hop off and look around or simply enjoy the return trip, heaps of history info and pics, well worth it.

Great way to travel across to Granite Island . Picturesque ride across the water. Recommend the ride over if travellers have mobility issues as walk can be tiresome.

The trip is about half an hour each way with a twenty minute stopover. You could also stay longer and catch the next trip back.
