Re-live our the century’s most flamboyant decade

Twenties

Enjoy a rare day of seeing and riding Sydney’s earliest trams which normally reside in our Display Hall! These are the trams which pioneered one of the world’s largest tramway systems.

Your day ticket gives you unlimited rides so you can actually ride every tram of the larger than usual running fleet on one day.

There can hardly be a cheaper day in Sydney: seniors and concession card holders have unlimited rides for only $12 and school children for just $10 (pre-schoolers are free). The adult price is $18 and there are family arrangements where, after two adults and just one child, extra children in the same family are free.

One tram on special display will be “celebrating” its centenary: K class number 1296; it sported a specially configured extra braking system to safely convey its passengers down the steep downhill incline of Neutral Bay Road. It was the last four wheel tram in regular passenger service – into the mid 1950s!

And for the two weeks after our Roaring Twenties day, we’ll run trams every weekday as well as our usual Sundays. Check our schedule on the left.

If trains are handy for you, we actually have a railway station right next door: it’s Loftus on the Waterfall line.
