An enjoyable way to explore Melbourne city centre - Sit back and relax as you ride the historic rambuncle 1920s trams. The special burgundy trams depart every 20 minutes seven days a week from 10.00am to 4.00pm. The trams run along Flinders St, Spring St, Latrobe St and Spencer Street, circling Melbourne CBD. If you start your journey and end it within the city Central Business Distric limits, you can now travel for free on any tram, but you will find it hard to beat the historic ones.
