The city's layout makes Melbourne an easy city to navigate, and almost everything is in walking distance - if it's not simply hop aboard a train, tram or bus.
Melbourne is the only city in Australia that has retained its network of trams. It gives the city character and provides a scenic way to explore the city and inner suburbs like Richmond, St Kilda and South Yarra. Trams run down the centre of the road on most of Melbourne's major thoroughfares.
Distinctive burgundy and gold City Circle trams provide free and convenient travel to city sights and attractions, with an automated commentary announcing points of interest along the route. Running along Flinders Street, Harbour Esplanade, Docklands Drive, La Trobe Street and Spring Street, a complete journey takes around an hour.
City Circle trams run in both directions every 12 minutes from 10am-6pm Sunday to Wednesday and 10am-9pm from Thursday to Saturday (except Christmas Day and Good Friday). Unfortunately they are not wheelchair accessible.
