Travel Around Melbourne for Free on the City Circle Tram

in Australia

The Victorian city of Melbourne is home to the largest tram network in the world, and these electric cable cars are a wonderful way to get about the capital.


Visitors are spoiled with free travel to many major sights on the City Circle Tram.

The tram follows a rectangular circuit which passes Melbourne Aquarium, Federation Square, Etihad Sports Stadium, Parliament House, and other key Melbourne tourist attractions. On board commentary informs travelers of points of interest ahead, and you can hop off at any stop for a closer look.

Once you’re done it’s never too long until the distinctive maroon-brown colored tram comes to collect you. It arrives roughly every 12 minutes between 10 am and 6 pm most days and until 9 pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. However it does not run on Christmas Day, or Good Friday.

The Melbourne City Circle tram is similar to Sydney’s Explorer bus, but it has the advantage of being completely free!
