Ballarat Tramway Museum


Enjoy Ballarat's Living History by travelling by tram with the Ballarat Tramway Museum.

History lives in Ballarat and in Wendouree Parade. Take a ride in one of the 100 year old trams which provided Ballarat's main form of public transport until 1971. The vintage tram ride covers almost one and a half kilometres of original line through the beautiful Botanical Gardens situated by the western side of the tranquil Lake Wendouree. The journey takes about 20 minutes.

The Ballarat Vintage Tramway is operated by the Ballarat Tramway Museum Inc., formed to keep alive a tramway experience that has otherwise disappeared from the streets of Ballarat.

The Museum is one of a few purely volunteer groups in the world operating tramcars on a public road and over a section of original track.

At the depot there is a museum where the story of the Ballarat trams and its people is told through photographs, historic films and tramway memorabilia. The tramcar fleet and workshops area can also be inspected. Guided tours can be arranged. Souvenir items may be purchased.

The tramcar collection includes Ballarat Horse Tram No. 1, dating from 1887 and two trams, under restoration, from the original Electric Supply Company of Victoria fleet. The running fleet consists of nine tramcars which initially ran in Melbourne and arrived in Ballarat between 1930 and 1951, and four acquired directly from Melbourne by the Museum.

Australian Ex-Prisoners of War Memorial


'They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn at the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.'

With these few words from the poem, 'For the Fallen', by the English poet and writer Laurence Binyon, you are welcomed to the Australian Ex-Prisoners of War Memorial. This unique memorial was opened on 6 February, 2004, to recognise and remember those Australians who became Prisoners of War during the wars of the twentieth century.

The Memorial symbolises that all Australian prisoners embarked to serve away from their homeland and acknowledges the hardship, deprivation, brutality, starvation and disease endured by prisoners of war during their capture and the scars many continued to endure upon their repatriation to Australia.

In these magnificent botanical gardens, the Memorial is a place of quiet reflection and a place to remember loved ones and to mourn those 8,600 prisoners of war that died in captivity and remain buried on foreign shores.
