I found the tram ok but, a bit too expensive even if one only did a few stops down the road the cost would be 6 dollars. In the inner city the tram is free to areas which are important

Originally set up for tourists, this tram ride is free and circles the perimeter of the city, with commentary on places of interest at each stop. The ride is somewhat redundant these days as all tram rides are free within the city zone.

Free and easy way to get to know the Melbourne City areas. Although all trams in the inner City area (we called it "the green zone") is free, this route (the City Circle) highlights the iconic areas in the City.

We went for a ride on this old style tram. As a teen I would catch similar trams everyday, except they were a lot more "breezy". My husband who grew up near the Murray river has only contended with trams in the traffic. He had...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

The free tram is an old traditional tram and may be difficult to climb onboard . The new trams are wheelchair accessible and it is not expensive to travel on them.
