Summer 2014 – 1

Our summer programme completes its nine day marathon of open days this Monday.

A relaxing and interesting way to complete the holidays!

For an easy-going and quiet day out, why not journey back to an age with an easier pace? Riding genuine Sydney trams will give you an interesting, enjoyable and inexpensive day out. And if you have little ones to entertain, it’s even more fun.

Many grandparents bring their young ones with them. Often they are former regular tram travellers and they have lots to tell the children. Grand-parents are our very best tour guides!

Our visitors can take a gentle ride through some of The Royal National Park. It’s our Bushland Cruise! The rpound trip takes just half an hour. Our National Park trams run once an hour departing at fifteen minutes past every hour. Between these, there is a a tram ride to South Sutherland on a separate line.

Our Museum grounds include a small park with a large picnic shelter. We have plenty of shade and there’s also our Display Hall with our oldest and most interesting trams. This and unlimited tram rides are all included in your Day Ticket.

Costs are probably the cheapest of any rides in Sydney: grandparents have unlimited rides for only $12 (well, all seem to have Seniors’ Cards) and school children for $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.

On many days, we run trams from more than one state. Bris 180 grpThe one at right is an amazing Brisbane tram designed in the early 1900s.
