The following series of short presentations look at the various tramway precincts in Ballarat, the past and present, using a series of photographs and movies to show the changes over the years, during the times when the tramways were operating and since they were closed in 1971.

More precincts will be added as they are prepared.

The images presented in the following presentations are drawn from the Ballarat Tramway Museum Collection and from individual Member's work. See the pdf file for details of the individual photographers and donors.

The movies presented are in You Tube format (located on our You Tube channel) or MP4 form suitable for iPhones and other small screen devices. Down load size about 30Mb max.

If you have problems, try saving the movie to your system first.
