Heritage Festival: Ride the WWI Trams


Discover the excitement of riding in historic electric trams that were running during the First World War.

Melbourne's electric tramways were built just before the outbreak of war in 1914. The trams from this era were replaced by the famous 'W class' trams in the 1930s. The old trams were not retired, but sold to the State Electricity Commission's Provincial Tramways in Ballarat, Bendigo, and Geelong, where they continued in service for many years.

The Ballarat Tramway Museum has a fleet of nine trams, built between 1911 and 1917, which will be running on a surviving section of the Ballarat Tramway, first built in 1887. This is a unique opportunity to see the heritage tram fleet in action, and ride in a variety of beautifully restored trams.

Special opportunities will exist for photographers.

The National Trust Heritage Festival runs each year in April and May and is a celebration of our shared heritage. Any organisation with an interest in history and heritage can participate. There are hundreds of events happening across the state with the theme of Discovery and Rediscoveries in 2016. To find out more head to the website.
