Great way to get around and see most of Melbourne’s items of interest. Also nice to ride on and older style of tram, but be prepared to stand some of the time as they can be quite busy depending on the time of the year.

The tram system in Melbourne is fantastic. It is also free with the city centre. The city Circle Tram is good for finding your way around when you first arrive. It takes you round most of the interesting places you might want to visit.

Visiting the city and wanted to see where to spend more time later. The Circle Tram does that in spades. Comfortable and easy and gets you to most of the high points in the city.

We jumped on this free tram on our first day in Melbourne. It allowed us to get an idea of where things were. Only problem is that it is popular and very crowded.

I can't recall the shop. Knowing the route, I can only assume it's at the Northern route near the Queen Vic Markets? But, best to google it. Mike
