"Night Tram" - Monday 19 September 2016

Our 2016 Night Tram on Monday 19 September 2016 will mark the 45th anniversary of the closure of the State Electricity Commission Operated Ballarat Tramway system.

Tram 40, the official "last tram" will depart from the depot at 7.30pm, for at least one round trip and more if needed. The tram will stop along the line for photos, but will not pick up passengers in Wendouree Parade.

Cost: Adults $4.00, children $2.00 and Members are free. Please buy your tickets from the Tram Conductor at the Tram Depot.
