The Ballarat Tramway Museum is planning the following Special Events:

Horse Tram Running Day - Friday 26 January 2018.

The Ballarat Horse Tram No. 1, will be operating on Friday 26 January 2018, from the northern end of our tramway. Services will start at about 11.00am and the last trip will leave about 3.30pm, from the Gardens Loop, near Piper's Restaurant and the Fernery. This is the annual outing for the tram, which is just over 130 years old, having commenced work in December 1887. Don't miss a chance to ride on the tram, which is the oldest operating tram in Australia. There will be some great opportunities for photographs. Fares $10 Adult, $5 Children. Our horses for 2018 are provided by Sovereign Hill.
