Travel on part of Ballarat's Living History

History Lives in Ballarat and in Wendouree Parade. Take a ride on one of the trams which are 90 or more years old and provided Ballarat's public transport until 1971.


When do we Run?

Trams run every Saturday, Sunday, public holiday and during the Victorian school holidays between 12.30pm and 5pm in Wendouree Parade throughout the year.  Trams are available for hire. 

Our Display area at the depot is open between 4pm and 6pm daily and other times depending upon volunteer availability.


Fares: Adult $4, Children $2, All-day ticket $8.


The vintage tram ride covers 1.3km of original line through the beautiful Botanical Gardens by the western side of tranquil Lake Wendouree and takes about 20 minutes.
