The City Circle Tram service provides a free and convenient way to get around central Melbourne. Tourists, shoppers, office workers and families can use the City Circle Tram to travel to major attractions, shops and city events.
An audio commentary provides details of city landmarks and major attractions such as the City Museum, Parliament House, Docklands, Federation Square, Melbourne Aquarium and the Princess Theatre.
The City Circle route is serviced by heritage W class trams decorated in special maroon and green with yellow and gold trimmings.
Tourists can spend all day on a City Circle Tram. Information leaflets, including an 'easy to understand' map of the city are available on board each City Circle Tram. The City Circle Tram can be used as a 'hop on - hop off' service, this way tourists can enjoy each of Melbourne's sites and have the added bonus of traditional Melbourne transportation.
To catch the free City Circle Tram service (route number 35), simply board the tram at any of the specially marked stops on the route.
