Royal Pop Up Tram at dusk with Alexandra Fountain in the foreground

All aboard the Royal Pop-up Tram!

You can't miss it, it's the giant Union Jack taking pride of place on the Piazza in Rosalind Park.

Thanks to the Tudors to Windsors exhibition which was on at the Bendigo Art Gallery, we well and truly caught Royal Fever!

Step aboard the Royal Pop-up Tram and give us your best Royal wave. 

Relax in one of the booths or pull-up a bar stool to enjoy the view of Alexandra Fountain, which was proudly opened in 1881 by Prince Albert Victor and Prince George. The story of their visit can be read on board.

Sip on freshly brewed coffee, courtesy of Get Naked Espresso, and bop along to British tunes.

Take the opportunity to get the ultimate selfie ... Don't forget to tag #BendigoTramways and #ExploreBendigo, we love checking out your photos!

Look out for the British telephone booth to gain great local and regional information.

OPENING TIMES: 10am to 2pm, Wednesday to Sunday.

DATES: The tram will be stationed at the Piazza until November 2019.

NB! Although the Royal Pop-up Tram is not wheelchair accessible, we do have an accessible Vintage Talking Tram. Bookings are essential, as not all of our heritage fleet are accessible. Please phone us on 5443 8255 to schedule your visit. The best place to catch the tram is at Central Deborah Gold Mine, which also offers the wheelchair accessible underground Mine Experience Tour.
