There is no better way to see the sights of Bendigo than aboard a beautifully refurbished Vintage Talking Tram.
You will be delighted by the remarkable sights and sounds of Bendigo as your tram tells you entertaining stories about the city founded on one of the world's richest goldfields while passing monuments like the impressive Alexandra Fountain, the majestic Sacred Heart Cathedral and the stately promenade Pall Mall.
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.
Make sure you include a stop-over at Australia's oldest operating tram depot. Located at Tram Stop No. 3, a Self-guided Depot Tour will leave you in awe as you explore the home of our iconic heritage tram fleet and see where trams from all over the world are restored to their former glory.

Come and meet Birney the Cat:
The tramways is home to a beautiful rescue cat who now calls our Depot home. Birney has enthusiastically taken on the role of Tramways Superintendent. When he isn't busy napping, you will find him keeping an eye on our fleet of historic trams, greeting visitors to the depot and, of course, posing for photographs. Birney even has his own book, which is available for purchase at our gift shop.
