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 allowing you 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. 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 tells the story of Bendigo as it was during World War One) or the Dja Dja Wurrung Tram (which shares the traditions of Bendigo's first people).
