Which vintage tram will you ride on to see historic Bendigo?


Visiting Bendigo? Sit back and enjoy a vintage 'talking' tram ride as you pass by historical sites. You can book a tour on one of Bendigo's lovingly restored trams and learn about goldfields history. There are several stops during the tour where you can alight from the tram and rejoin later.

Bendigo Tramways
Bendigo Tramways historic depot


Bendigo Tramways has been in operation since 1890 and is Australia's oldest operating tram depot. Originally offering a transport system, it now operates as a popular tourist attraction. As well as tram tours, you can also tour the recently renovated depot and workshop. Vintage tram stops include Central Deborah Gold Mine, Charing Cross (central Bendigo), Lake Weeroona, and Bendigo Joss House Temple. Tours commence at Central Deborah Gold Mine, but you can join a tour from any of the other stops.

Another service is the tram restaurant on board Bendigo Ninesevensix, a 1952 Melbourne W-class tram that has been refurbished and offers a fine-dining experience on the move for its patrons. Bookings to dine on Ninesevensix are made through Winebank on View. It can also be booked for special functions.
