Our tram depot, at the south end of the Ballarat Botanical Gardens, houses the tramcar collection, including Horse Tram No. 1 of 1887, a museum display with photographs, videos, tramway memorabilia, trammie stories, souvenirs and book shop. EFTPOS Facilities are available at the depot - $10min, no cash out.
The depot is open for visitors from 12 Noon on operating days (depending on volunteer staff availability). It is also open every afternoon from about 4pm. A self-guided tour is possible or when volunteers are available; a formal guided tour. A gold coin donation would be appreciated to enable our work to continue.
