City Circle Tram, Melbourne

4.3
#1 of 239 in Transportation in Australia
City Circle Tram serves as one of the best examples of how warmly the city of Melbourne welcomes visitors. The free tram travels through the heart of the city, past famous attractions such as City Museum, Parliament House, Docklands, Federation Square, Melbourne Aquarium, and the Princess Theatre. Although the Melbourne city government established the line in 1994, it used heritage trams built between 1923 and 1956 to create a vintage experience for riders. Although the trams can get crowded at some points, you won't find a better value way to tour Melbourne's most impressive sites. Before you head to Melbourne, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Melbourne trip builder , to make sure you see all that Melbourne has to offer, including City Circle Tram.

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
