Trams of Australia


Almost all major cities in Australia ran trams in the past (well, if your town was to be taken seriously, it just had to have them). Click on the map below [8] to find out more about the trams of the cities. [Map, with links. The links are all repeated below] (Not all cities have information pages yet - the links are disabled for those that don't.) For a general, Australia-wide description of Australian Trams, click on the map away from any cities. Some efforts have been made to preserve historic rolling stock in various museums around the country.
