Can't beat the price, free! We used this transport many times during our 7 days in Melbourne. Very easy to transfer to other lines but you must pay..

I’ve used the city circle tram many times, I enjoy it because it gives you the “authentic” Melbourne feel. The rattles, the smells and the quiet chatter. A worthwhile experience!

Couldn't believe what a fantastic tram system Melbourne has.....free all around the city. Lots of stops and so easy to get on and off....A little busy at peak hour ( expected) but comes regularly and there's literally no where you can't get to.Well done Melbourne.....

The circle tram has very old tram cars (think San Francisco cable cars) that are not comfortable to sit in (all wood seats, small, etc), but the tram is a nice way to see the city. It is convenient for getting around (although other trams within city limits are also free and larger and nicer), and the service is frequent. No tickets required, just hop on at one of its numerous stops.

A handy way to get an idea of some of Melbourne areas and what there is around and to do.
Jump off at Flinders St Station and journey to Southbank for some great little restaurants
